We're in Beverley, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is RBS , and our lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I am buying a detached bungalow in Beverley. Our aim is to convert the garage to an office at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to ascertain if these works were previously refused?
Your conveyancer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Beverley will sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of changes or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
My husband and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Leeds Building Society as we intend to carry out alterations to our property in Beverley. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Beverley solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Leeds Building Society do not ordinarily appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Leeds Building Society panel.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Principality are being pedantic. The Beverley solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Principality are requiring 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.

I am an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a house in Beverley which will be marketed. The bungalow has never been registered at the Land Registry and I'm told that many estate agents will insist that it is done before they'll proceed. What's the mechanism for this?
In the situation you refer to it seems sensible to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
