Are the Danescourt conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the HSBC conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by HSBC?
Danescourt conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from HSBC directly.
Me and my partner are buying a flat in Danescourt. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On the day of competition we have to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?

I have been told by my solicitor that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Danescourt?
The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Danescourt conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Virgin Money will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Virgin Money will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Danescourt surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Me and my brother have a terraced Victorian house in Danescourt. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Leeds Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Danescourt and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
I'm refinancing my primary property to a buy to let mortgage with Accord Mortgages Ltd and intend to use the remaining equity towards another property.

Do use our search tool on this site to check that the conveyancers are on the appropriate lender panels. Having checked that they are your solicitor will be able to connect the two transactions but you should talk with you lawyer and specify your desired outcome and needs.
