Can you help - my lawyer advises that restrictive coveneant insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Hanslope conveyancing?
The appropriate level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Virgin Money. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
We expect to receive a OIP from Santander this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Santander recommend any Hanslope solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Hanslope solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Santander conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Santander through the process.
What does a local search tell me concerning the property we're buying in Hanslope?

I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Hanslope for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Hanslope conveyancing specialists.
Am I better off to go with a Hanslope conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can conduct the legal formalities but her office is a couple of hundredmiles drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Hanslope conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and they were impressed that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Hanslope conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
