Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Mundesley?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Mundesley your lawyer will ask you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Normally this is called for to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is as part of the total price then this should be needed immediately prior to exchange of contracts. The final balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.
I am helping my niece sell her house in Mundesley. Does the conveyancing solicitor arrange the EPC or it is for me to coordinate?
Following the abolition of HIPs, energy performance certificates became a required component of selling a house. An EPC should be to hand in advance of the property being marketed. It is not a task that solicitors normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Mundesley conveyancing lawyer they might help arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with long established local energy assessors
is it true that all Mundesley solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Santander approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My offer was accepted on a house in Mundesley on 13/12/2018, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Are Barclays entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Mundesley benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it will impact my loan with Leeds Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Me and my partner are planning to purchase a 2 bedroom bungalowin Mundesley with a residential mortgage from a lender. We have a lawyer in Mundesley yet our bank inform us now that she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our lender panel firms or keep our Mundesley solicitor and incur the extra legals for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our mortgage company use our Mundesley lawyer?
No, not really. The lender mortgage issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Mundesley : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
