My wife and I are nearing an exchange on a property in Axminster and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my conveyancer. I am now told that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

The conveyancing practitioner is duty bound to check with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only notify this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I am helping my step-mother sell her house in Axminster. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission an energy assessment or should I organise this?

Following the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments remained a compulsory element of selling a property. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned before the property is advertised. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. If you are using a Axminster conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with reputable local providers

We previously selected conveyancing lawyers based in Axminster on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They have just billed me a separate amount for dealing with the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Clydesdale?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Clydesdale but by your Axminster conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Clydesdale panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.

Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are a common reason for obstruction in Axminster house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Axminster.
