As someone not used to conveyancing in Shropshire what is your top tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Shropshire

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Shropshire or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, property agent and even potentially a bank. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Shropshire an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your conveyancer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do take action that is contrary to your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Principality, do Shropshire conveyancers have to pay a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any lender fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

I have paid off my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Shropshire solicitor on the TSB panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your TSB mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your TSB mortgage has been paid off.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Co-operative are being problematic. The Shropshire solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative 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 need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Shropshire. I have chance upon a site which looks to be the perfect offering If it is possible to get all the legals completed via email that would be ideal. Should I be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

What happens where there is an issue with the searches carried out as part of our conveyancing in Shropshire?

On the whole, almost all problems arising from Shropshire conveyancing search responses can be dealt with before completion or indemnity insurance may be obtained. You need to note that regardless of the fact that you intend on buying the premises and might be content to live with the search results, your lender may not, and when all said and done they have the word say.
