Listed Buildings Issues

Confirmation of a the status of a listed building will be discovered by a buyer's Conveyancing Solicitor, as part of the local search. Special interest may also apply to nationally important examples of particular building types and techniques, for example buildings displaying technological innovation or virtuosity. As the whole property is protected by listed status, if, for example, a sixteenth century house is listed, it would be an offence to demolish a twentieth century concrete garage in the grounds of the house. Owners of flats or apartments in a listed building should bear in mind that the building maintenance costs of such properties may be higher than for purpose-built blocks.

Alternatively, properties may be listed as scheduled monuments, but will still have strict guidelines governing planned works. Monuments and listed buildings in Newport include Bowl Barrow on Arreton Down, Bowl Barrow on Tapnell Down, Canal aqueduct, and Carn Briw Round Cairn.

What are the consequences if your solicitor is not on your Lender's panel?

Panels of solicitors are maintained by mortgage lenders in order to undertake legal work on mortgaged properties. Recently, lenders have changed the criteria for the firms which they will accept on their panels. They have also reduced the size of their panels, removing firms which do not carry out much Conveyancing work or which they consider to have proved unsatisfactory in the past. These options are available to any homebuyer whose solicitor is not on their lender's panel:

  • Try to obtain a mortgage from another lender who will instruct your Conveyancing solicitor.
  • Instruct another firm of Conveyancing solicitors who are on your lender's panel to handle your Conveyancing.
  • Continue with your present Conveyancing solicitor, but accept that a separate firm will also act for the lender, and that you will have to pay their costs in addition.

It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage. Be aware of the following, if you choose to remain with your first choice of law firm:

  • You must now pay the lender's costs in addition to your own
  • You will not get any priority from the lender's solicitors, as they will have many other cases underway, and you are unable contact these solicitors directly
