Is my conveyancer’s course or action appropriate?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the ITL Mortgages conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. it might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off.

I have agreed a price on a flat I spoke to a conveyancer previously used by my uncle and he recommended instructing a property lawyers approved by ITL Mortgages. The estate agent recommended two local firms so I asked ITL Mortgages if the 2 suggested solicitors are approved, which they are not. ITL Mortgages suggested that either practice can fill out the appropriate forms to become approved. Do I (1) save myself the aggravation and use one of ITL Mortgages 's conveyancing panel solicitors (2) Use the local solicitor and accept there may be delays etc as they go through the approval process.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in month 2010 but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, ITL Mortgages are being pedantic. The solicitor who is on the ITL Mortgages conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but ITL Mortgages are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do ITL Mortgages have a conveyancing panel of they don’t accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that ITL Mortgages have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why ITL Mortgages may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing correctly and safely installed. It merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
