Please help. My Wennington conveyancer is assuring me that she is duty bound toconduct Wennington conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westsolicitor panel. Is this really necessary?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Wennington conveyancing searches.

Me and my brother own a renovated Georgian property in Wennington. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Nottingham Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wennington and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
My husband and I are 14 days into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the high street agent to carry out the conveyancing in Wennington. We are not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
A lawyer would have to be really poor in order to consider changing them. Has the loan offer been sent? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your conveyancer should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental fees and delays. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.
