Having sold my house in Beaworthy last October but the buyer keeps texting daily to say their conveyancer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?
Post completion of your house sale your solicitor should forward the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer must also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been repaid to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion formalities just for conveyancing in Beaworthy.
My Conveyancer in Beaworthy is not listed on the Bank of Ireland Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the Bank of Ireland approved list?
The limited options available to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Beaworthy lawyers but Bank of Ireland will need to instruct a solicitor on their panel. This will result in additional total legal charges as well as result in delays.
- Get a new lawyer to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check they are Bank of Ireland approved.
- Persuade your Bank of Ireland based solicitor to seek to join the Bank of Ireland panel

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Beaworthy is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Beaworthy are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Beaworthy you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beaworthy may determine 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 property.
