Can you point me to a directory of Barclays panel conveyancers in Tiptree on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few lenders make their panel listings open the public on the web. If you are seeking to appoint a Tiptree conveyancer on the Barclays please make the most of our facility.
Is it the case that all Tiptree conveyancing solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Santander conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Planning on purchasing a house in Tiptree. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Tiptree conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Tiptree I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Tiptree for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
My husband and I are 18 days into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the estate agent to carry out the conveyancing in Tiptree. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
A solicitor would need to be really bad in order to consider replacing them. Has the mortgage offer been issued? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the new contact details and get the loan are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the lenders panel to avoid supplemental fees and delays. That should be your first question of the new solicitors. The search tool can assist you in finding a lender approved solicitor for your conveyancing in Tiptree
I have just started marketing my basement flat in Tiptree. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently received a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as you normally would as all ground rent and service invoices will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
Tiptree Leasehold Conveyancing - Sample of Questions you should ask before buying
On the whole the cost for major works tend not to be incorporated into the service charges, albeit that there some managing agents in Tiptree obliged leaseholders to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific intention of building a fund for major repairs or maintenance. Its a good idea to find out as much as possible regarding the managing agents as they can either make your living at the property much easier or much more difficult. Being a leasehold owner you will be at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to daily matters like the tidiness of the communal areas. You should not be shy to ask other people what they think of their management. On a final note, find out the dates that the maintenance charges are due to the appropriate party and specifically how they are spending the funds. What prohibitions are contained in the Tiptree Lease?
I am soon to complete on the purchase a property in Tiptree but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have agreed recompense from the current proprietors of five thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however my mortgage company will not agree to this. Should they have been notified?
Your solicitor that is on a lender approved list is duty bound to advise the mortgage company of any variations to the purchase price. If you did not allow your conveyancer to disclose the reduction to your lender then they would have to refrain from representing you and the lender.
