My wife and I are buying a flat in Hull North. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On the day of competition we will need to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

We previously instructed conveyancers locally in Hull North on the HSBC solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further sum for dealing with the HSBC mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by HSBC?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by HSBC but by your Hull North lawyer. Some firms on the HSBC panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Hull North. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is HSBC your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to HSBC where a lease does not comply with these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Hull North.
I completed on my house on 16 July and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Hull North expressed confidence that it should be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Hull North uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Hull North registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not always primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
