My wife and I are about to complete on the purchase of a property in Seaton but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Lloyds will not permit this. Why were they approached?

The lawyer that is on the Lloyds approved list is required to advise Lloyds of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to report the price change to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Seaton.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Seaton. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Seaton?

On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Seaton.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Seaton. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Barclays have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays your lawyer must check the formal instructions outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Barclays where a lease does not meet these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Seaton.

I have a mortgage with Clydesdale for my property in Seaton. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Clydesdale?

Your original mortgage agreement with Clydesdale will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Clydesdale will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Clydesdale directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel lawyer.

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the estate agent informed us that the vendor will only go ahead if we appoint their preferred conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Seaton

It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Seaton conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
