My financial adviser requires my Boldon Colliery solicitor’s panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have tried my local Boldon Colliery branch but they have not got back to me yet.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Boldon Colliery conveyancing practitioner . They maintain a central record lender panel numbers.
How up to date is your database of Boldon Colliery solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? Do Nationwide send you an updated list?
Boldon Colliery conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nationwide directly.
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Boldon Colliery. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Boldon Colliery?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
Is there a list of Skipton panel solicitors in Boldon Colliery on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few banks make their panel listings visible online. Where you are in need of a Boldon Colliery conveyancing practitioner on the Skipton please use our facility.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Boldon Colliery. My financial adviser suggested a conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £175. A couple of days later, the property lawyer called me to say that they were not on the UBS 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 UBS 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 close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Boldon Colliery and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Boldon Colliery. Having lived in Boldon Colliery for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I purchased a semi-detached Edwardian house in Boldon Colliery. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Boldon Colliery and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
