I am acquiring a ground floor flat in Oldland. My Conveyancer is not listed on the bank conveyancing panel. Am I still permitted to continue with my Oldland conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company panel?
You will need to have a property lawyer to complete the formalities if you take out a loan to buy your property. The lawyer will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. One could instruct a Oldland lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the bank approved list further costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so if your lawyer has not historically sought membership they should take the chance to apply.
My son-in-law is about to exchange on a newly built flat in Oldland with a mortgage from RBS. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
My fiancee and I are in the throws of looking at apartments in Oldland and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Skipton.
You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the estate agent. As you are seeking a mortgage with Skipton, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Principality are being problematic. The Oldland solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Principality are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
