I sincerely hope you can help me. My Rowen lawyer is advising me that he has toapply for Rowen conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. These Rowen searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Rowen conveyancing searches.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Rowen costs more?
Rowen leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

We are purchasing a terrace house in Rowen. We would like to an extension at the rear at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to ascertain if these alterations were previously refused?
Your conveyancer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Rowen will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain alterations or necessitated the consent of another owner. Many additions call for local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Nottingham are being problematic. The Rowen solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nottingham are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham 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.
