Is it correct that all Tibshelf CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel?

Some major banks and building societies now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of firms.

I'm spending time looking at flats in Tibshelf and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have my property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Leeds Building Society.

It would be prudent to instigate 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 details on to the selling agent.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Tibshelf. I have a mortgage offer with Santander. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Santander, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Tibshelf differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Tibshelf come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Tibshelf usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Tibshelf or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Tibshelf I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Tibshelf in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

We have instructed a Tibshelf conveyancing solicitor for our home move (novice purchasers) and have spotted in the terms and conditions that they are not covered by the Financial Conduct Authority. Am I right to be concerned or is that the norm with lawyer?

We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They will be regulated by the SRA, who have strict conditions in place on monies deposited on client account.
