Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ferryside

Finally the sale completed on my house in Ferryside last May but our buyer keeps whats apping daily complaining that his lawyer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

Following your sale your lawyer is duty bound to deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer must also send confirmation that the home loan has been discharged to the buyers lawyers. There are no post completion formalities specific conveyancing in Ferryside.

I am being advised by my solicitor that lack of building regulations insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Ferryside?

We have agreed to purchase a house in Ferryside. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Lloyds have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Lloyds your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds. The CML Handbook sets out minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Lloyds where a lease does not satisfy these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Ferryside.

My offer was accepted on a house in Ferryside on 5/8/2022, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health.

Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Are Lloyds entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
