HSBC do not ordinarily instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC list.

My wife and I are spending time viewing apartments in Woodley and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Yorkshire BS.

It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later.

Given that you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

Intending to buy a house in Woodley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Woodley conveyancer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Woodley completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Finally our conveyancing in Woodley is completing on Friday, but the couple I am purchasing from has asked to vacate on the Saturday noon. Can I agree to such a idea?

If you need a mortgage then your property lawyer will demand that the premises arevacant on Friday - the bank will insist on it.
