Me and my partner are purchasing our first property. Our conveyancer has calledto enquire if we would like to order additional conveyancing searches. Frankly we in the dark as to what's relevant for conveyancing in Loughborough
The number and type of Loughborough conveyancing searches should be triggered based entirely on the property, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your knowledge of the region and risks, your general attitude to risk. What is important is that you properly comprehend what information the searches could supply. You may then make a decision if you consider that you need that information. If unclear, ask your conveyancer to recommend.
Is there a search tool that I can utilise to find out if the solicitor conducting my conveyancing in Loughborough is on the mortgage lender’sapproved panel?

My wife and I are purchasing a house in Loughborough. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we will need to put funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I just acquired a house at auction in Loughborough. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?
Given that you have now exchanged you now have to retain a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are facing a pending deadline in which to complete the purchase. All auction property should have a bespoke auction pack. This will likely include most,if not all of the paperwork that your solicitor will need. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the conveyancing pack may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to a leasehold property. You should pass this on to the lawyer working for you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that your finances are organised to complete on the date specified in the contract.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Coventry BS. Is it usual for Coventry BS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Loughborough is approved on their conveyancing panel? Coventry BS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My wife and I are selling our house in Loughborough and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Loughborough conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Loughborough. We have lived in Loughborough for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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)
