My financial adviser requires my Falmouth lawyer’ panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. How do I obtain this. I have tried my local Falmouth office but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Falmouth conveyancing practitioner . Most Falmouth conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.

How does conveyancing in Falmouth differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Falmouth come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Falmouth tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Falmouth or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Falmouth I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Falmouth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
Myself and my husband have recently had an offer agreed on a house and had meeting on Wednesday with Nationwide for the mortgage. They advised us that when it comes to selecting a lawyer that if they are not on their approved list of conveyancing practitioners then we will be subject to an an extra fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to appoint a property lawyer to act for them in addition to the one we appoint on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have requested Nationwide to furnish me with a list so I can request quotes only from their approved conveyancers but was told that I need to check with each individual solicitor to see if they are on the panel. What would be the best way of going about this?
You should ask Nationwide what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Then ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for Nationwide historically. If the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Nationwide. Alternatively please make use of our search tool and we may be able to locate a property lawyer in Falmouth on the panel for Nationwide.
