We previously chose conveyancing lawyers with offices in Islington on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a separate charge for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Islington lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Coventry BS are being problematic. The Islington solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Coventry BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS 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.
How does conveyancing in Islington differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Islington approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Islington tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Islington or who has acted in the same development.
