We are a couple about to sign contracts for a property in Long Ashton. We encountered a problem. Our mortgage offer with Skipton Building Society expires on 9/5/2019 but the owners are suggesting a completion date of 13/5/2019. Can one prolong the loan offer?
The person best placed to address this concern is your lawyer who is in a position to calculate if they better off negotiating with the bank, owner’s lawyers, estate agents or possibly all parties taking into account the circumstances your transaction to date.
My home in Long Ashton is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does my lawyer need to be required to be on the TSB conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the TSB conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Lloyds are being pedantic. The Long Ashton solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Lloyds are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Lloyds have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Lloyds 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.
