Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in South Brent is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s work?
That would most likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the South Brent conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
My nephew is in the process of securing a newly built flat in South Brent with a home loan from Aldermore. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Me and my brother own a renovated Georgian property in South Brent. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in South Brent and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my grandfather I am selling a property in Monmouth but reside in South Brent. My solicitor (approximately 260 kilometers from mehas requested that I execute a statutory declaration ahead of the transaction finalising.
