Are all Shrewton Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel?

It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. Shrewton conveyancing lawyers were selected. How long does it take for Virgin Money to forward the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Virgin Money completed the valuation? Have you advised Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Virgin Money are being problematic. The Shrewton solicitor who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Virgin Money are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Virgin Money have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Virgin Money have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Virgin Money may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Shrewton is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Shrewton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Shrewton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Shrewton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

My uncle has suggested that I instruct his conveyancing solicitors in Shrewton. Should I choose my own conveyancer?

No doubt it’s preferable to select a conveyancing lawyer is to get recommendations from friends or relatives who have actually experience in using the conveyancer that you are are thinking of instructing.

I purchased a house in Shrewton last 19/12/2017 and to date it is still not registered with HMLR. It was part of a new estate and my solicitor told me that it can take 12 months to register. I have spoken with HM Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Should I be concerned?

It is your conveyancing practitioner that you really need to contact in order to satisfy any questions which have arisen as part of the registration process for your Shrewton property. Normal Shrewton conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the vendor’s solicitor that they will help resolve any question raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking in some way.
