We are selling our apartment in Highcliffe. Does my solicitor have to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.
My stepmother pointed out to me me that in buying a property in Highcliffe there could be a number of restrictions prohibiting external changes to a property. Is this right?

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, TSB are being problematic. The Highcliffe solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB 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.
We are buying a property and the conveyancer has identified Chancel Repair for which the property could be liable as it falls into the area of such a church. She has recommended insurance. Is this really required for conveyancing in Highcliffe

I am expecting to exchange on the purchase a house in Highcliffe but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have agreed recompense from the owner of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however my mortgage company will not permit this. Why were they involved?
Your lawyer listed on a lender conveyancing panel is required to inform the mortgage company of any variations to the purchase price. If you did not allow your solicitor to disclose the reduction to your bank then they would need to disinstructing themselves from representing you and the mortgage company.
