I sincerely hope you can assist me. My Hope solicitor is assuring me that he has toconduct Hope conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer correct?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Hope conveyancing searches.
At what point does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Hope and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?
If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Hope you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the law practices we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hope)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Hope. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Hope?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from HSBC as we want to conduct a loft conversion to our property in Hope. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Hope solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

I had an offer accepted on a house in Hope on 30/4/2021, valuation was booked 4 days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Nottingham and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Are Nottingham entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nottingham to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
