I am due to complete buying a property in Aylesbury but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the vendor in the sum of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Santander are not allowing this. Why were they approached?
Your property lawyer that is on the Santander conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Santander of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to disclose the price change to Santander then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Santander and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Aylesbury.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Aylesbury conveyancing solicitors were chosen. How long does it take for UBS to issue the offer to the lawyer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have UBS conducted the survey? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Principality are being a right pain. The Aylesbury solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Principality are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

There are only Sixty One years remaining on my flat in Aylesbury. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What are my options?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to find the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent may be helpful to try and locate and to produce a report to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Aylesbury.
