My IFA says he needs my Axmouth and Branscombe lawyer’ panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have e-mailed my local Axmouth and Branscombe office but they don't know it.
Have you tried speaking to your Axmouth and Branscombe conveyancing practitioner about this?. Most Axmouth and Branscombe conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
My fiance and I intend to remortgage our flat in Axmouth and Branscombe with Kent Reliance. We have a son 19 who lives at home. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the flat is forfeited by the lender. I have two questions (1) Is this document specific to the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his entitlement to inherit the property?
On the face of it your lawyer has done nothing wrong as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Kent Reliance. This is solely used to protect Kent Reliance if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Kent Reliance had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.
I am assisting my aunt sell her flat in Axmouth and Branscombe. Will the solicitor commission the energy assessment or it is for the owner to see to?
After the demise of HIPs, energy assessments was retained a compulsory element of moving property. An EPC needs to be commissioned in advance of the property being marketed. It is not something that conveyancers ordinarily organise. If you are using a Axmouth and Branscombe conveyancing practitioner they might be able to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established Axmouth and Branscombe providers
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Axmouth and Branscombe. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I recently had an offer agreed on a house in Axmouth and Branscombe. My mortgage broker suggested a property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Not long after, the conveyancing practitioner called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the RBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the RBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
