My lawyer has discovered a a problem with the lease for the flat we are buying in Sprotbrough. The seller’s lawyers have offered defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must ensure that the mortgage company is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
Even though you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. You and the bank are the client. The appropriate lender provisions have to be complied with.

Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Sprotbrough. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?
Given that you have now exchanged you now have to hire the services of a conveyancing lawyer quickly as you now have a pending deadline in which to complete the conveyancing.

You must pass this on to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. You also need to ensure that you have funds in place to complete on the on the contractual date .
My husband and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Bank of Ireland as we wish to carry out alterations to our property in Sprotbrough. Do we need to appoint a local Sprotbrough solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Bank of Ireland would not normally require firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland panel.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nationwide are being pedantic. The Sprotbrough solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nationwide are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide 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.
My solicitors in Sprotbrough have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
