I was notified recently by my mortgage broker that my Ilfracombe lawyer is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure that this is correct?
Your first step should be to call your Ilfracombe conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
Is it realistic for conveyancing in Ilfracombe to be done in less than 10 days?
In a situation where you are under pressure to exchange it is highly recommended that your conveyancer is familiar with the location as they will have local relationships and insight. It is even conceivable that they may have handled previoushomes in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Ilfracombe conveyancing solicitor. Second, make sure that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company.

My wife and I are buying a property in Ilfracombe. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we will need to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Ilfracombe. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an on account payment of £225. Soon after, the property lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the UBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the UBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, HSBC are being difficult. The Ilfracombe solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but HSBC are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC 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.
