I recently had an offer accepted on a house in West Derby. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £175. A couple of days later, the solicitor called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Bank of Ireland. Is it usual for Bank of Ireland to only issue the offer once my solicitor in West Derby is approved on their conveyancing panel? Bank of Ireland have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. West Derby is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in West Derby are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside West Derby you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in West Derby may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

As a leasehold owner I am liable for a maintenance contribution for my flat in West Derby. Due to losing my job and personal issues I slipped into arrears with payments. The freeholders agreed a payment schedule but there is still approximately £2000 outstanding at the current time.
I now wish to sell and I am concerned this may hold me back if I have to discharge the amount due first. I'd like to sell up and subsequently pay them back with the proceeds - is this possible?
You should clarify with the lawyer dealing with your West Derby conveyancing but it may be possible to arrange for the outstanding amount to be attributed to the buyers. The contractual price payable would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They would then discharge the outstanding monies once they are the owners.
