Please help. My Stanwick conveyancer is informing me me that she is duty bound toapply for Stanwick conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have any options here?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a home 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 lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Stanwick conveyancing searches.

The vast majority of premises in Stanwick should be revealed. Have you attempted a search to just the postcode. Normally it should mention all the premises within the postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought 50 years ago it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The address could still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title papers which may be with your parent’s bank.
