I am not well enough to travel far from Hadley Wood. Please explain the reason why all Hadley Wood conveyancers are not on all mortgage company panels?

Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in mortgage companies purging less reputable firms off their panel of approved lawyers .

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden apartment in Hadley Wood. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and service charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
