My IFA says he needs my Newcastle upon Tyne lawyer’ panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I discover this. I have e-mailed my local Newcastle upon Tyne branch but they have not responded to me.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Newcastle upon Tyne property lawyer . They keep a central record lender panel numbers.
I am hoping to move into my new home in Newcastle upon Tyne next Monday. My conveyancer now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the mortgage company. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?
All property lawyers on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 conditions. These requirements are not specific to conveyancing in Newcastle upon Tyne.
I have recentlyfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Newcastle upon Tyne for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Newcastle upon Tyne conveyancing specialists.
In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandfather I am selling a residence in Monmouth but I am based in Newcastle upon Tyne. My lawyer (who is 200 kilometers awayrequires that I execute a statutory declaration before completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Newcastle upon Tyne who can attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Newcastle upon Tyne
My solicitors in Newcastle upon Tyne have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
