My solicitor has discovered a defect with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Kirby Muxloe. The seller’s lawyers have suggested defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our property lawyer says that he must check that the lender is willing to move forward with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the mortgage company are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

My lawyer in Kirby Muxloe is not on the Barclays Direct Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to use my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the Barclays Direct approved list?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Kirby Muxloe solicitors but Barclays Direct will need to use a solicitor on their panel. This will result in additional overall conveyancing fees and result in frustration.
- Find an alternative practitioner to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are Barclays Direct approved.
- Try to convince your Barclays Direct solicitor to seek to join the Barclays Direct panel
I am purchasing a detached bungalow in Kirby Muxloe. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to ascertain if these works are allowed?
Your conveyancer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Kirby Muxloe will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit categories of alterations or require the consent of another owner. Many additions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
When it comes to lenders such as Virgin Money, do Kirby Muxloe conveyancing practitioners face a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

I have instructed a Kirby Muxloe property lawyer having made sure that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Kirby Muxloe surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Kirby Muxloe is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Kirby Muxloe are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Kirby Muxloe you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kirby Muxloe may ascertain 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.
