Even though it may seem unfair for banks to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or solicitor’s perspective, the the contrary view is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and feel it vital to protect them from mortgage fraud.

Now that you are to in every practical sense signed on the dotted line you now have to retain a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of urgency as you are faced with a pending deadline in which to complete the transaction. An auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke auction set of papers. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the auction papers may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Arkley. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this provision is primarily there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

We previously chose solicitors based in Arkley on the Yorkshire BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further amount for the legal aspects of the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Yorkshire BS?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Arkley conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

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.
