My partner and I are purchasing an apartment in Hebden Bridge. My Solicitor has never been on on the lender solicitor panel. Can I still appoint my Hebden Bridge conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You must instruct a conveyancer to deal with the formalities if you take out a mortgage to buy your property. The conveyancing practitioner will carry out all the appropriate legal checks on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. You could appoint a Hebden Bridge lawyer of your choosing. However, where the conveyancer appointed is not on the mortgage company solicitor panel supplemental fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so where your solicitor has not previously sought membership they should do so.
My wife and I are about to complete on the purchase of a property in Hebden Bridge but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the vendor in the sum of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement but UBS will not agree to this. Why were they approached?
The property lawyer that is on the UBS conveyancing panel is duty bound to disclose to UBS of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to notify the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Hebden Bridge.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Hebden Bridge is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Hebden Bridge are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hebden Bridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hebden Bridge may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
