Can you point me to a directory of Bank of Ireland panel solicitors in Skegness on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lenders make their panel listings viewable over the internet. Where you are in need of a Skegness conveyancer on the Bank of Ireland please use our facility.

The mortgage over my property is with Bank of Ireland for my property in Skegness. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Bank of Ireland?

Bank of Ireland must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Bank of Ireland’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Bank of Ireland will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Bank of Ireland directly. You need not do this via a Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel solicitor.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Skegness is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Skegness concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Skegness is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Skegness are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Skegness you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Skegness may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Hoping to buy a property located in Skegness and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Skegness. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Skegness area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Skegness. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

Should one as executor remove a deceased person's name from the title deeds for a house in Skegness?

Where a Skegness property is jointly owned and one of the owners dies, their name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds. You are not required to remove their name as in the event of a sale you would simply be required to evidence as to the reason the other owner is missing from the conveyance, such as a grant of probate.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing smoother in the future you can arrange to have the deceased party erased from the title entries by submitting an application to the land registry with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
