Is the fact that my conveyancer in Rossett is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his conveyancing?
That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack 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 Rossett conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
I am assisting my aunt sell her flat in Rossett. Will the solicitor arrange an EPC or it is for the owner to see to?
After the demise of HIPs, energy assessments became a mandatory component of selling a property. An energy performance certificate needs to be to hand prior to the property being placed on the market. This is not a task that solicitors ordinarily organise. Where you are instructing a Rossett conveyancing practitioner they may be able to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established local energy assessors

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Rossett. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
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. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved 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 am buying my first flat in Rossett with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my solicitor about this deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
My husband and I are a fortnight into a freehold purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the selling agent to perform conveyancing in Rossett. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the level of service. Can you help me find new conveyancers?
