Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wiltshire

My wife and I are due to exchange on the purchase of a property in Wiltshire but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors of £2k by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however UBS will not permit this. Should they have been informed?

Your solicitor being on the UBS conveyancing panel is duty bound to disclose to UBS of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your lawyer to notify the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Wiltshire.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Principality. Wiltshire conveyancing lawyers were instructed. How long does it take for Principality to issue the offer to the property lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Principality completed the survey? Have you advised Principality as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Principality conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

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

As your lender is Lloyds your lawyer must follow the formal requirements outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Lloyds where a lease does not comply with these provisions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Wiltshire.
