My fiance and I are hoping to purchase a home in Accrington and have appointed a Accrington conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Skipton Building Society have this afternoon contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Accrington conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Please explain?

Where you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Accrington lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Accrington. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't locate my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Accrington involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Accrington can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of alterations or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Many works need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I'm the sole recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Accrington. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in September. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this clause principally exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease does not meet these conditions.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
