Please help. My Isle Of Anglesey solicitor is informing me me that she is duty bound toconduct Isle Of Anglesey conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santanderapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have any say here?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a lender your property lawyer 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 lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Isle Of Anglesey conveyancing searches.
Will my conveyancer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Isle Of Anglesey.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Isle Of Anglesey. There are those who purchase a property in Isle Of Anglesey, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Isle Of Anglesey. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the owner to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim stemming from an incorrect answer. The buyer’s solicitors should also carry out an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be made.

Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the bank conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the mortgage company approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
