Is the fact that my conveyancer in Tarporley is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should contact the Tarporley conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
We had instructed conveyancing lawyers located in Tarporley on the Principality solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional charge for dealing with the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Principality but by your Tarporley lawyer. Numerous firms on the Principality panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
I'm in the process of looking at apartments in Tarporley and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with HSBC.
It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are seeking a mortgage with HSBC, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
Intending to buy a maisonette in Tarporley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide 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 Tarporley conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Tarporley conveyancing specialists.
