We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from Santander as we intend to carry out improvements to our house in Forest Row. Are we obliged to appoint a nearby Forest Row solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Santander don't usually appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander list.

It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Forest Row building society branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Forest Row conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the conveyancer is on the bank panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Lloyds are being pedantic. The Forest Row solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Lloyds are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Forest Row completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
