I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Towyn. The Towyn property was put into my name in August. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. Most mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement chiefly exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Yorkshire BS, do Towyn conveyancing practitioners have to pay a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, RBS are being pedantic. The Towyn solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Completion is due on the disposal of our £350,000 apartment in Towyn next week. The management company has quoted £348 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Towyn?
Towyn conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not necessitates the purchaser’s conveyancer sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer these enquiries the majority will be willing to do so. They may invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has no choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
