Is it the case that all Mold solicitor firms on the Skipton conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
How can we tell if a Mold conveyancing solicitor on the UBS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Mold obtaining recommendations is a good 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 advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your conveyancing.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from RBS as we wish to conduct renovations to our property in Mold. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Mold solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
RBS would not normally require firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the RBS list.
five months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Mold took place. 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 property 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Mold is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Mold are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Mold you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Mold may decide 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 residence.
