You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook.

This charge is not dictated by Leeds Building Society but by your Oxton conveyancer. Numerous firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I am purchasing a property in Oxton. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender RBS be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS your lawyer must follow the formal instructions set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for RBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to RBS where a lease does not satisfy these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Oxton.

Should our conveyancer be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Oxton.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Oxton. There are those who purchase a property in Oxton, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Oxton. The conventional set of information sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard question of the seller to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer could issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. A purchaser’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental report. This should reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be made.

You can agree a lesser deposit. Many vendors will agree to a smaller deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
