The Wimborne conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my house acquisition in Wimborne have suddenly closed. I only went with them because I needed a lawyer on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my preferred Wimborne lawyer was not. I paid them 275 plus VAT in advance. What should be my next steps?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.
I am buying a 3 bedroom semi in Wimborne. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these works were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Wimborne can occasionally identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain alterations or require the consent of a 3rd party. Many works require local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I am purchasing a property in Wimborne. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Leeds Building Society be concerned?
Given that your lender is Leeds Building Society your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Leeds Building Society. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Leeds Building Society where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Wimborne.
My offer was accepted on a house in Wimborne on 11/12/2020, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Are Skipton entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Wimborne 10 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
