Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the house moving as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Llanfyrnach. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Llanfyrnach?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Llanfyrnach. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Llanfyrnach conveyancer on the RBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your RBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being problematic. The Llanfyrnach solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Bank of Ireland are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland 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.
