Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Reddish is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Reddish conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
It is is a decade since I acquired my house in Reddish. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your mortgage company or they could be archived with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Reddish relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
Should our conveyancer be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Reddish.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Reddish. There are those who acquire a house in Reddish, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Reddish. The standard information supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard inquiry of the vendor to determine if the property has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s lawyers may also conduct an environmental search. This should reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.
