Some advice if I may. My Petworth conveyancer is advising me that he is legally obliged toapply for Petworth conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook.
