I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Santander. I intend to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Stow on the Wold. Does the Santander Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Santander conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Last September we completed a house move in Stow on the Wold. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Stow on the Wold?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Stow on the Wold. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a form called a SPIF. If the information ends up being inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim 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 Stow on the Wold.
I am helping my aunt sell her flat in Stow on the Wold. Will the conveyancer arrange the energy assessment or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of HIPs, energy performance certificates remained a required part of moving property. An EPC needs to be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. It is not a task that solicitors normally arrange. Where you are using a Stow on the Wold conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with reputable Stow on the Wold energy assessors
My wife and I purchasing a detached bungalow in Stow on the Wold. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to ascertain if these works were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Stow on the Wold can on occasion identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of changes or need the permission of a 3rd party. Many extensions call for local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
How can we tell if a Stow on the Wold conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Stow on the Wold seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your transaction.

Me and my wife accepted an offer on a Stow on the Wold apartment left to us some years ago in 2012. I have over twenty years conveyancing know-how and, although retired, wish to undertake the conveyancing. The buyer's conveyancing practitioner has informed me that their Lenders will not allow us to do our own conveyancing as they require the funds to be passed via a solicitor's bank account.
Lending instructions to solicitors from all mainstream lenders specify that If the vendor does not have legal representation the borrower's lawyers should check whether the lender needs to be notified so that a decision can be made as to whether they are prepared to move forward.
