It is is a decade since I acquired my property in Park Royal. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be retained by your lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Park Royal involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
Is it correct that all Park Royal CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel?
Some major banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Park Royal. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. RBS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS your lawyer must check the formal requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for RBS. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to RBS where a lease does not comply with these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Park Royal.
We were going to get a DIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Park Royal solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Park Royal solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
