I am considering applying for a Bank of Ireland mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Mosborough with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, but Bank of Ireland would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
Is there a list of Bank of Ireland panel conveyancers in Mosborough on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few lenders make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are looking for a Mosborough solicitor on the Bank of Ireland please make the most of our facility.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Mosborough off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Nottingham. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
I've digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Mosborough solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Mosborough surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Mosborough?

An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Am I best advised to go with a Mosborough conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can handle the conveyancing however her office is approximately 350miles away.
The primary upside of using a local Mosborough conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign documents, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were impressed that must surpass using an unfamiliar Mosborough conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Mosborough based.
