Please help. My Slade Green solicitor is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Slade Green conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. Is my conveyancer correct?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Slade Green conveyancing searches.
It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Slade Green. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't locate my title deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be retained by your lender or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Slade Green relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
I am assisting my sister sell her house in Slade Green. Does the solicitor order an energy performance certificate or do I organise this?
After the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s was left as a required part of moving property. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned prior to the property being advertised. It is not a task that solicitors normally arrange. Where you are using a Slade Green conveyancing solicitor they might be able to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with long established Slade Green providers

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
