I have just been advised by my mortgage broker that my Eaton Bray property lawyer is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?
The sensible course of action for you to take is to call your Eaton Bray conveyancer. You lawyer should inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Eaton Bray. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

I've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Eaton Bray solicitor - who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS 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 Eaton Bray 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.
four months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Eaton Bray concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am selling a property in Newport but reside in Eaton Bray. My conveyancer (approximately 300 kilometers from mehas requested that I sign a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Eaton Bray to witness and place their company stamp on the document?
Technically speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Eaton Bray based
