We are hoping to buy a 3 bedroom apartment in Aberdovey with a homeloan from TSB.We like our Aberdovey conveyancing lawyer but TSB advised that she’s not on their "panel". It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a TSB panel firm or keep our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the TSB conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for TSB
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Aberdovey is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Aberdovey are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Aberdovey you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Aberdovey may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
I was recommended by a number of property agents in Aberdovey to locate a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers ahead of another?
We don’t give any commission for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
