It is 10 years ago since I acquired my property in Moor Row. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't locate my title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they could stored with the lawyers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Moor Row involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

My conveyancer has informed me that missing deeds insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Moor Row?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Barnsley Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I currently have a mortgage with Nationwide for my property in Moor Row. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Nationwide?
You must advise Nationwide before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nationwide will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nationwide directly. You need not do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel lawyer.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Moor Row. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard 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 port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
