What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Crook

It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Crook conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Crook. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Lloyds are being problematic. The Crook solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Lloyds are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Lloyds have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Lloyds may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
