Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mountsorrel

Is the fact that my solicitor in Mountsorrel is not identified on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Mountsorrel conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

I am considering applying for a RBS mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Mountsorrel with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for RBS ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the RBS conveyancing panel, but RBS 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.

I am assisting my step-mother sell her flat in Mountsorrel. Will the solicitor arrange an EPC or do I organise this?

Following the demise of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was kept a mandatory part of moving property. An energy assessment must be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. This is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Mountsorrel conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable local energy assessors

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Barclays are being problematic. The Mountsorrel solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Barclays are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays 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.

TSB have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a flat in Mountsorrel has been accepted, now what?

The estate agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancer's details (make sure the lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone TSB or the financial adviser and complete any relevant forms. TSB will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days to get a mortgage offer. TSB will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Mountsorrel.
