We are soon to complete buying a property in Robertsbridge but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the seller of six thousand pounds taking the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Yorkshire BS will not permit this. Should they have been notified?
Any conveyancing practitioner being on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Yorkshire BS of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to report the price change to Yorkshire BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Yorkshire BS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Robertsbridge.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Robertsbridge off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Co-operative. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Robertsbridge. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
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 Services Department at head office. We understand that 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, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Robertsbridge. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Not long after, the solicitor contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Aldermore panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
The deeds to our home are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Robertsbridge 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to execute a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.
I have been recommended by numerous estate agents in Robertsbridge to choose a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to recommend your site rather than a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
