I am not in a position to travel far from Leyton. I would like to know the understand why all Leyton conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all lender panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in banks and building societies culling a number of firms from their books of approved conveyancing practitioners .
We are soon to exchange buying a house in Leyton but as a consequence of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the owner in the sum of £3k by way of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Kent Reliance will not agree to this. Why were they notified?
Any solicitor that is on a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Kent Reliance of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to notify the reduction to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Leyton.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Coventry BS are being pedantic. The Leyton solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance 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.

Your estate agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Telephone HSBC or your broker and complete any appropriate documentation. HSBC will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week to receive the mortgage offer. HSBC will send the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Leyton.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Leyton I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Leyton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
