I am about to put an offer on a leasehold apartment in Tiverton. The estate agents say that it is the norm for flats in Tiverton to have less than 75 years unexpired on the lease. I am getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland. Is this going to be a problem if the lease has 69 years left.

Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Tiverton. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to put money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

Is it the case that all Tiverton solicitor firms on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Kent Reliance approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be overseen by the CLC.

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

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

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Tiverton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Tiverton. Having lived in Tiverton for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Me and my brother have a renovated Victorian house in Tiverton. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Halifax. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Halifax to clarify?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Tiverton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
