We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Penrith conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers.

I've read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Penrith solicitor - who is on the RBS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

RBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually RBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Penrith postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with RBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Penrith.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Penrith 5 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be evidenced by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure current copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.
