Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Dursley conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Santander conveyancing panel?

Dursley conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Santander conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Santander directly.

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Dursley. The Dursley property was put into my name in April. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this obligation is primarily there to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Does a directory service exist listing TSB panel solicitors in Dursley on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few lenders make their panel listings open the public over the internet. If you are looking for a Dursley conveyancer on the TSB please use our facility.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being difficult. The Dursley solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance 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.
