Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Romiley

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Romiley is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should simply call the Romiley conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Romiley. My lender is Accord Mortgages

Accord Mortgages have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 8/10/2021, the requirements read as follows :

I am helping my sister sell her house in Romiley. Does the conveyancing solicitor order the energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to see to?

After the demise of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was left as a compulsory element of moving property. An energy assessment should be to hand before the property is advertised. It is not something that law firms normally organise. If you are instructing a Romiley conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established local assessors

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Principality are being problematic. The Romiley solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Principality are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

Bank of Ireland have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in Romiley has been agreed to, now what?

Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (be sure the property lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Call up Bank of Ireland or the broker and finalise any outstanding documentation. Bank of Ireland will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Bank of Ireland 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 Romiley.

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of stalling in Romiley house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Romiley.

The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2081
