My IFA has requested my Wimborne lawyer’ panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have contacted my local Wimborne office but they have not responded to me.
You are best placed to get this information from your Wimborne conveyancer . Most Wimborne law practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
We are about to complete on the purchase of a house in Wimborne but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the seller of three thousand pounds in the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Coventry BS will not permit this. Should they have been informed?
The conveyancing practitioner being on a Coventry BS approved list is obliged to advise Coventry BS of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to Coventry BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you.

After the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s became a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy assessment must be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not something that lawyers normally organise. If you are instructing a Wimborne conveyancing lawyer they may be able to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with long established Wimborne providers
I'm the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Wimborne. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement chiefly exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
My wife and I purchased a renovated Edwardian property in Wimborne. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Godiva Mortgages Ltd to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wimborne and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
