Me and my partner are intending to purchase a 2 bedroom flat in Polperro with a mortgage. We have a Polperro solicitor, but the mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel solicitors or continue with our Polperro lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Polperro conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
My brother and I have lately acquired a house in Polperro. We have noticed several problems with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Polperro?
The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Polperro.

As part of the process, a seller completes a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers provided is incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Polperro.

I am purchasing a property in Polperro. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender HSBC be concerned?
As your lender is HSBC your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Barclays are being a right pain. The Polperro solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Barclays are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
