Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bishop Auckland

Me and my fiance are acquiring an apartment in Bishop Auckland. My property lawyer is not listed on the lender conveyancing panel. Can I still use my Bishop Auckland conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?

You will need to have a lawyer to complete the legal work required when you take out a mortgage to buy your home. They will conduct all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. One may select a Bishop Auckland solicitor of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the conveyancer appointed is not a member of the lender approved list additional fees will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not historically applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.

These days conveyancing panel lawyers for banks carry out their communications via the post, internet or over the phone.

is it true that all Bishop Auckland solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be regulated by the CLC.

My partner and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from TSB as we intend to conduct renovations to our home in Bishop Auckland. Do we need to select a local Bishop Auckland solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

TSB do not ordinarily require a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB panel.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Bishop Auckland. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

I am downsizing from our property in Bishop Auckland and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Bishop Auckland conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Bishop Auckland. We have lived in Bishop Auckland for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bishop Auckland is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Bishop Auckland are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bishop Auckland you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bishop Auckland may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
