Can I be sure that the Creekmouth conveyancing solicitor on the UBS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Creekmouth getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor handling your transaction.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Creekmouth. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender HSBC be concerned?
Given that your lender is HSBC your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to HSBC where a lease does not meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Creekmouth.
I have paid off my mortgage with HSBC. I assume I don't need a Creekmouth conveyancing practitioner on the HSBC panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your HSBC 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 HSBC mortgage from the register. HSBC, 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:
- but are not moving to another property
- where HSBC has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- HSBC has instructed the Land Registry to do so
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Creekmouth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Creekmouth conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Creekmouth. We have lived in Creekmouth for many years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 sickness)
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Creekmouth 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your solicitor should know precisely where to locate all the suitable paperwork so you may purchase or dispose of your property without a hitch. Where copies can’t be found, your conveyancer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your property.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Creekmouth. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
Following years of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Creekmouth. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
