I am approaching an exchange on a flat in Tickton and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not arrived from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to be an issue?
The lawyer is obliged to check with lender to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Is it the case that all Tickton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
It is true that some banks and building societies now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
My wife and I are in the process of viewing flats in Tickton and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Bank of Ireland.
It would be advisable 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. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Clydesdale. Is it usual for Clydesdale to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Tickton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Clydesdale have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Tickton?
Conveyancing - in Tickton or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re purchasing and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects before you complete your move.
