Q and A’s regarding the Earl Shilton Building Society Conveyancing Panel from members of the public

My Solicitor has never been on on the Earl Shilton Building Society Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my preferred solicitor even though they are not on the Earl Shilton Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You will need to have a conveyancer complete the legal work required when you take out a Earl Shilton Building Society mortgage to buy your property. They’ll carry out all the necessary legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in place. You can instruct a conveyancing firm of your choice. However, if the firm selected is not a member of the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel additional costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by Earl Shilton Building Society. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they can do so.
We are approaching an exchange and my mum and dad having sent the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my lender Earl Shilton Building Society. I am advised that, being on the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel and acting on their behalf he must inform Earl Shilton Building Society if the balance of the mortgage advance is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the bank about my parent’s contribution when I applied for the home loan so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
Your lawyer is obliged to check with Earl Shilton Building Society to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to Earl Shilton Building Society if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the Earl Shilton Building Society approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word.

I am remortgaging my house does my lawyer need to be on the Earl Shilton Building Society Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel, but Earl Shilton Building Society would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I have had an offer accepted on a house I spoke to a conveyancer previously used by my dad and he advised using a property lawyers approved by Earl Shilton Building Society. The estate agent recommended two local firms so I asked Earl Shilton Building Society if the 2 suggested solicitors are approved, which they are not. Earl Shilton Building Society pointed out that either firm can fill out the appropriate forms to become approved. Do I (1) save myself the aggravation and use one of Earl Shilton Building Society 's conveyancing panel solicitors (2) Use the local solicitor and accept there may be delays etc as they go through the approval process.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a solicitor having made sure that they are on the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property? Or I've digested plenty of mortgage guides,I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my solicitor - who is on the Earl Shilton Building Society conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Earl Shilton Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Earl Shilton Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller. or Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Earl Shilton Building Society you could contact your them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors.
