Our lawyer has uncovered a defect with the lease for the apartment we are purchasing in Enderby. The other side have put forward title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancer has advised that he must check that the bank is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the lender can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your solicitor will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
We are planning on selling our property in Enderby and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Enderby lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Enderby. We have lived in Enderby for six years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to check with 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)

The managing agents has quoted £420 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Enderby?
Enderby conveyancing on leasehold flats more often than not requires the buyer’s conveyancer sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to these enquiries most will be willing to assist. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the invoice is not strictly payable. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to complete the sale of your home.
