My fiance and I are hoping to acquire a property in Pyle and have instructed a Pyle conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Bank of Ireland have this morning contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Pyle lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?
Where you are buying a property requiring a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Pyle solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden apartment in Pyle. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you pay the invoice as normal given that all rents and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
