My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Wallington. I need to find out whether they are on the The Royal Bank of Scotland approved list of lawyers. Could you help?

I am helping my niece sell her flat in Wallington. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange the energy performance certificate or do I organise this?
After the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was kept a mandatory component of selling a house. An energy assessment must be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. This is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers normally arrange. Where you are using a Wallington conveyancing practitioner they might help arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with reputable local assessors

The mortgage over my property is with Nationwide for my property in Wallington. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Nationwide?
Nationwide must be informed of your intention before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nationwide directly. You need not do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel firm.
three months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Wallington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
I was pointed in your direction by a number of selling agents in Wallington to select a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to give any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
