We wish to acquire a newbuild apartment in Alrewas with a loan from Accord Mortgages Ltd.We would like to retain our Alrewas conveyancing lawyer but Accord Mortgages Ltd advised that he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Accord Mortgages Ltd approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Accord Mortgages Ltd
My wife and I purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Alrewas. We would like to an extension at the rear at the house.Will legal due diligence on the property involve checks to determine if these works are prohibited?
Your property lawyer will check the registered title as conveyancing in Alrewas can occasionally identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of changes or require the consent of another owner. Many works call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Alrewas conveyancing lawyers are instructed. How long does it take for Aldermore to issue the offer to the conveyancer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Aldermore done the valuation? Have you informed Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I have paid off my mortgage with Skipton. I assume I don't need a Alrewas lawyer on the Skipton panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Skipton mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Skipton mortgage from the register. Skipton, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Skipton has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Skipton has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Should my conveyancer be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Alrewas.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Alrewas.

However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that can be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Alrewas. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the seller to discover whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser may commence a compensation claim stemming from an inaccurate response. A buyer’s conveyancers should also order an enviro search. This should indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be conducted.
