My wife and I are purchasing a flat in Aston Clinton. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to put funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

We have agreed to purchase a house in Aston Clinton. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Clydesdale be concerned?
Given that your lender is Clydesdale your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease does not comply with these provisions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Aston Clinton.
I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Aston Clinton bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Aston Clinton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
The solicitor must follow the CML Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Our offer on semi in Aston Clinton has been accepted, but there is a chain. The current proprietors have submitted an offer on somewhere, although it’s not been accepted yet, and has viewings of other properties in the pipeline.

The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Skipton approved list.
