My wife and I are spending time viewing apartments in Lee On The Solent and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it sensible to have a conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a mortgage with Co-operative.
It would be prudent to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are taking out a mortgage with Co-operative, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Lee On The Solent. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Nationwide are being problematic. The Lee On The Solent solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nationwide are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide 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.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Lee On The Solent 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
As long as you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be recorded by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.
