Our Barlborough conveyancer has discovered an inconsistency between the information in the home valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor informs me that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
A friend informed me that in buying a property in Barlborough there may be various restrictions prohibiting external alterations to the property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Barlborough which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Barlborough should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
When it comes to lenders such as Principality, do Barlborough conveyancers incur a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
I had an offer accepted on a house in Barlborough on 13/5/2022, valuation was booked 4 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Barlborough is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Barlborough are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Barlborough you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Barlborough may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the property agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Barlborough
It is improbable the owners are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your preferred Barlborough conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.
