I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Barclays are being problematic. The Fulford solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Barclays are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays 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.
It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Fulford concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Am I better off to choose a Fulford conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can conduct the legal formalities but her office is 200kilometers drive away.
The primary upside of using a local Fulford conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, deliver your ID and pester them where appropriate. Having local Fulford know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and the majority were content that must trump using an unknown Fulford conveyancing lawyer just because they are Fulford based.
My lawyers in Fulford have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
