It is is a decade since I purchased my property in Bamber Bridge. Conveyancing lawyers have just been retained on the sale but I can't locate my title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they could 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 up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Bamber Bridge relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

We previously instructed solicitors located in Bamber Bridge on the HSBC solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate sum for dealing with the HSBC mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by HSBC?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner can charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by HSBC but by your Bamber Bridge conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the HSBC panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.

Can I be sure that the Bamber Bridge conveyancing solicitor on the TSB panel is any good?
