Please help. My Werrington solicitor is advising me that he has toorder Werrington conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a lender your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Werrington conveyancing searches.

I was recommended by two or three local estate agents in Werrington to choose a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers over another?

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that appears to be perfect, at a great figure which is making it more attractive. I have since discovered that it's a leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Werrington. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?
The majority of houses in Werrington are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor who is familiar with the area who can help the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Werrington so you should seriously consider looking for a Werrington conveyancing solicitor and check that they have experience in advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a lessee you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want with the house. The lease will likely included provisions such as requiring the freeholder’spermission to conduct alterations. It may be necessary to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the estate where the house is located on an estate. Your conveyancer will advise you fully on all the issues.
