I am purchasing a right to buy a flat in Falmouth. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Falmouth you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Falmouth.
Are all Falmouth Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
A selection of lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
How can we know in advance if a Falmouth conveyancing solicitor on the Aldermore panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Falmouth seeking recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your transaction.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Falmouth. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender HSBC be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with HSBC your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to HSBC where a lease does not comply with these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Falmouth.
We are downsizing from our home in Falmouth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Falmouth. We have lived in Falmouth for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
