When it comes to mortgage companies such as TSB, do Shipley property lawyers face an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any lender fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, TSB are being difficult. The Shipley solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

How does conveyancing in Shipley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Shipley contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Shipley tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Shipley or who has acted in the same development.

We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the property agent informed us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Shipley

It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your own,trusted Shipley conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets set by senior management.

Back In 2003, I bought a leasehold house in Shipley. Conveyancing and HSBC Bank mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Shipley who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

First make enquiries of the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Shipley conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
