I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Holyhead for our house move. Our broker informed us that our bank Norwich and Peterborough Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?

Lenders normally restrict either the category or the volume of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the type of firm, a few lenders have limited the number of firms they use to represent them. Be aware that Norwich and Peterborough Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Norwich and Peterborough Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are mixed opinions concerning the level of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Figures from the Land Registry indicate that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Holyhead only conduct one or two conveyances per annum.

If you have finished paying off your Co-operative mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Co-operative mortgage from the register.

  2. where Co-operative has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Co-operative has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Co-operative mortgage has been paid off.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Barclays are being a right pain. The Holyhead solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Barclays are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

If the lease is registered - and most are in Holyhead - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title.
