Do conveyancers ask for money on account for my conveyancing in Warrington?
If you are buying a property in Warrington your solicitor will request that you place them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches.

I am helping my step-mother sell her flat in Warrington. Will the conveyancing solicitor order the energy assessment or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was retained a compulsory element of moving property. An EPC should be to hand before the property is put on the market. It is not something that solicitors ordinarily organise. If you are instructing a Warrington conveyancing solicitor they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with long established local assessors
Is it the case that all Warrington solicitor firms on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be regulated by the CLC.
My offer on a semi in Warrington has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Warrington. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Warrington conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with the conveyancing in Warrington.
The deeds to my property can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Warrington 4 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Warrington is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Warrington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Warrington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Warrington may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
