I am selling my ground floor flat in Aston Clinton and the EA has just telephoned to warn that the purchasers are changing their solicitor. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only deal with property lawyers on their approved list. Why would a major mortgage company only work with specific solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose for their conveyancing in Aston Clinton ?
Banks have always had an approved set of law firms they are willing to work with, but in recent years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for many years.
Lending institutions blame a rise in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any impact on this.
Can I be sure that the Aston Clinton conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Aston Clinton getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.
About to purchase apartment in Aston Clinton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Aston Clinton solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
