Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ewloe

I am considering applying for a Virgin Money mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Ewloe with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Virgin Money ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Virgin Money will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

Me and my partner are purchasing a flat in Ewloe. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On the day of competition we will need to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

I am purchasing a property in Ewloe. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Bank of Ireland have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that your lender is Bank of Ireland your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Bank of Ireland. The CML Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease does not satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Ewloe.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Clydesdale are being pedantic. The Ewloe solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

Will our conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Ewloe.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Ewloe.

The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the owner to discover whether the premises has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect reply. The purchaser’s lawyers should also order an environmental report. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be initiated.
