Is it the case that all Calcot solicitor firms on the TSB conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the TSB approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the CLC.
We had instructed conveyancers located in Calcot on the Principality solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate fee for the legal aspects of the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Principality?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Principality but by your Calcot property lawyer. Some firms on the Principality panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
My offer on a semi in Calcot has been agreed to, the vendors do however have an associated purchase. The sellers have put an offer on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Calcot. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with TSB?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Calcot conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your property lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for a home loan with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Calcot.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Calcot. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just had a yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as normal as all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
