We had instructed conveyancers located in Kingsbridge on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a supplemental amount for dealing with the Barclays mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Barclays?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Barclays but by your Kingsbridge solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Barclays panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Kingsbridge conveyancing lawyers are appointed. How long does it take for Nottingham to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Nottingham completed the valuation? Have you informed Nottingham as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Kingsbridge. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Santander have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Santander your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Santander. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Santander where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Kingsbridge.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Kingsbridge is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Kingsbridge are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Kingsbridge you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kingsbridge 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 premises.
