We are looking to buy a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Sandy who is on the Virgin Money approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Sandy. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Sandy bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Sandy conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the mortgage company approved list, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Skipton will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Sandy.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Sandy. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as normal given that all rents and service invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
