Is it the case that all Maxton solicitor firms on the Skipton conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Maxton. My financial adviser suggested a solicitor. I paid an upfront payment of £225. A couple of days later, the conveyancer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
Skipton have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a property in Maxton has been accepted, now what?
Your estate agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (make sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Skipton or your broker and finalise any relevant paperwork. Skipton will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Skipton will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Maxton.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Maxton is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Maxton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Maxton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Maxton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
