We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Ardleigh Green for our home move. Our financial adviser informed us that our bank Nottingham Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

A decade ago most lenders had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Ardleigh Green conveyancing firms would have been on many mortgage company panels. The FSA in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies have regularly sought more data from law firms relating to their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum number of transactions. Many Ardleigh Green conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Ardleigh Green is one of the numerous locations where the conveyancers we recommend are are approved Nottingham Building Society.

is it true that all Ardleigh Green solicitor practices on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

We had appointed conveyancing lawyers locally in Ardleigh Green on the Santander solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional fee for handling the Santander mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Santander?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Santander but by your Ardleigh Green solicitor. Some firms on the Santander panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I have paid off my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. I assume I don't need a Ardleigh Green conveyancer on the Bank of Ireland panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Bank of Ireland mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Bank of Ireland mortgage from the register. Bank of Ireland, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Bank of Ireland has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Bank of Ireland has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Bank of Ireland mortgage has been paid off.

I wish to rent out my leasehold apartment in Ardleigh Green. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Notwithstanding that your last Ardleigh Green conveyancing lawyer is not available you can review your lease to check if you are permitted to let out the premises. The accepted inference is that if the lease is silent, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you are obliged to seek permission via your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining permission. The consent should not be unreasonably turned down. If your lease prohibits you from subletting the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.

I have given up trying to purchase the freehold in Ardleigh Green. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
