My Conveyancer in Kilburn Park is not listed on the Coventry Building Society Approved Panel. Can I still continue with my prefered solicitor even though they are not on the Coventry Building Society approved list?
The limited options available to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your existing Kilburn Park lawyers but Coventry Building Society will need to use a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will result in additional overall legal fees and result in frustration.
- Choose an alternative solicitor to act in the purchase, remembering to check they are Coventry Building Society approved.
- Try to convince your Coventry Building Society based solicitor to seek to join the Coventry Building Society panel
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Kilburn Park. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Kilburn Park?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Kilburn Park. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
A colleague pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Kilburn Park there could be a number of restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external changes to a property. Is this right?
There are anumerous of properties in Kilburn Park which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Kilburn Park should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Santander are being problematic. The Kilburn Park solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Santander are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander 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.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a residence in Swansea but I am based in Kilburn Park. My conveyancer (based 200 miles from mehas requested that I execute a statutory declaration ahead of the transaction finalising.
