My fiance and I are planning to buy a property in Ferndown and are in fact using a Ferndown conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our solicitor has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Yorkshire Building Society have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Ferndown lawyer is not on their conveyancing panel. Please explain?
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Ferndown lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Ferndown but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Ferndown and has limited impact for conveyancing in Ferndown but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
I require fast conveyancing in Ferndown as I am faced with a deadline to exchange contracts in less than 4 weeks. Luckily I do not require a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

I am purchasing a new build house in Ferndown with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this deal as it may put at risk my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Ferndown 1st floor flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Ferndown conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
A lease governs the relationship between the landlord and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will set out if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Ferndown do not prevent an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.

Make sure you enquire if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For instance it is very common in Ferndown leases that pets are not permitted in certain buildings in Ferndown.
