My friend's sister is a conveyancing practitioner. I hope that I will receive preferential pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what level of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in St Bees?

My conveyancer has identified a a legal deficiency with the lease for the property we are purchasing in St Bees. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must check that the lender is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the lender can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

Can I be sure that the St Bees conveyancing solicitor on the TSB panel is any good?

Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips.

About to purchase house in St Bees. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the St Bees lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

Our sealed bid on a house in St Bees has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in St Bees. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale going?

It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, St Bees conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of buyers will apply for a home loan with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their solicitor to press on with searches.
