We are planning to acquire a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Kirkby Stephen who is on the Aldermore solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Aldermore . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen.
Do I need to pop into the offices of the solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen so that I can attend their offices if necessary.
Whereas this was necessary twenty years ago, most mortgage companies no longer oblige their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to hand over ID documents and there are still distinct benefits to choosing a locally based practitioner, in your situation a conveyancing solicitor in Kirkby Stephen.
I used Stirling Law several years ago for my conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen. I now require my file but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

I'm purchasing a new build house in Kirkby Stephen with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it may jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender 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.
