My partner’s brother is a conveyancer. I suspect that I'll be able to get friends and family fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in St Annes Park?
It’s a good idea to look for 3 or more like-for-like conveyancing estimates. Make use of our search tool on this site. The prices may vary but the service one can expect are distinct between conveyancers as is true with the vast majority of professional services.
At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in St Annes Park and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in St Annes Park you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a national conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the sale agreement is not the important part. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in St Annes Park)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I am buying a property in St Annes Park. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Principality 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 Principality your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The CML Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Principality where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to St Annes Park.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being difficult. The St Annes Park 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 had an offer accepted on a property in St Annes Park on 30/5/2019, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Clydesdale and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Are Clydesdale entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in St Annes Park I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in St Annes Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
