I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Blakeney. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £200. Soon after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Coventry BS 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 Coventry BS 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.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Kent Reliance are being problematic. The Blakeney solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance 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.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Blakeney 5 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?
Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to look for all the suitable paperwork so you can purchase or dispose of your property without any difficulty. Where copies are not available, your conveyancer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on your premises.
My offer on detached house in Blakeney was accepted, the seller does nevertheless have a tied purchase. The current proprietors have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and has viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Blakeney. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going with Yorkshire BS?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Blakeney conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to press on with searches.
