Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Chaddesden. What is the rationale as to why all Chaddesden solicitors are not on all mortgage company panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in lenders pruning less reputable firms off their official list of approved lawyers .
I am thinking of mortgaging my apartment in Chaddesden, does my lawyer need to be on the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Coventry BS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
We are aiming to move house in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Chaddesden. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from your selling agent but this can only occur after the vendors solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Chaddesden or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Chaddesden.
It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Chaddesden building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Chaddesden conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the solicitor is on the lender panel, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Yorkshire BS are being difficult. The Chaddesden solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Yorkshire BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Chaddesden benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about this deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with Halifax. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Chaddesden I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Chaddesden in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
