Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lozells

I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Lozells for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our bank Bank of Ireland won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Banks tend to restrict either the category or the volume of conveyancing practices on their member panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have limited the amount of solicitor practices they permit to represent them. You should note that Bank of Ireland have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Bank of Ireland Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels since 2008 even though there remains mixed opinions regarding the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Lozells. I have a mortgage agreed with Bank of Ireland. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Lozells. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Lozells completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.
