I have just been advised by my broker that my Littleover solicitor is not on the lender Solicitor panel. What can I do to be certain that this is indeed the case?
The sensible course of action for you to take is to contact your Littleover conveyancer. You lawyer should inform you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.
My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Littleover. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Nationwide Building Society approved list of lawyers. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
You should phone your conveyancer and ask them if they can act for the bank. Otherwise you can get in touch with Nationwide Building Society who may be able to confirm.
How can we tell if a Littleover conveyancing solicitor on the Co-operative panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Littleover getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer handling your conveyancing.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Principality. Is it usual for Principality to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Littleover is approved on their conveyancing panel? Principality have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have finally had an offer on a flat in Littleover accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a flat, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Littleover. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Littleover conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Littleover.
It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Littleover completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Its a good idea to find out as much as you can about the company managing the block as they will affect your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you are often at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to practical matters like the cleanliness of the common parts. Enquire of other people what they think of their service. Finally, investigate as to the dates that the maintenance charges are due to the relevant party and precisely what it includes. Is there a share of the freehold? Generally speaking the outlay for major works are not included within maintenance charges, although there some managing agents in Littleover require tenants to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific intention of establishing a fund for major repairs or maintenance.
