My financial adviser requires my Rowlands Gill law firm’s panel member for the Santander conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have e-mailed my local Rowlands Gill branch but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Rowlands Gill lawyer . Most Rowlands Gill law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
I sincerely hope you can help me. My Rowlands Gill lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound toorder Rowlands Gill conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Is this really necessary?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Rowlands Gill conveyancing searches.
I used Stirling Law a few years ago for my conveyancing in Rowlands Gill. Now, I need the documents but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?
You should call the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Rowlands Gill I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rowlands Gill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
I have selected a Rowlands Gill conveyancing solicitor for our home move (FTB’s) and have picked up in the Ts and Cs that they are not governed by the FCA. Need I be worried or is that the norm with lawyer?
We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. You should check that they are regulated by the SRA, who dictate stringent obligations covering amounts deposited by them.
