Examples of recent questions relating to the Allied Irish Bank Conveyancing Panel

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor is not on the Allied Irish Bank Conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?
That would more than likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should simply call the firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for Allied Irish Bank.
Our son is purchasing a house that has just been built with a home loan from Allied Irish Bank. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Allied Irish Bank conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested.

The Developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it.

The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Allied Irish Bank conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

My existing mortgage is with Allied Irish Bank. My godfather retired last week and wants to pay off the mortgage left on the property. After Allied Irish Bank is paid, I want to transfer the property to my mother's name; How long does the process take? Do we need two separate solicitors on the Allied Irish Bank conveyancing panel? I do not intend to live at the property once the Allied Irish Bank mortgage is discharged.
You will need a solicitor but they need not be on the Allied Irish Bank conveyancing panel. You will need a solicitor to draw up the transfer and to deal with the Land Registry formalities. The only thing you need to consider is that by selling at an undervalue so ask your lawyer about the implications. There could be an inheritance tax issue if you die within 7 years of this. There's no capital gains tax for you as it is your main residence.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a solicitor having made sure that they are on the Allied Irish Bank conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property? Or I've digested plenty of mortgage guides,I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my solicitor - who is on the Allied Irish Bank conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Allied Irish Bank will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Allied Irish Bank will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller. or Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Allied Irish Bank you could contact your them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors.
