Me and my wife are acquiring a leasehold flat in Avery Hill. My property lawyer is not listed on the bank approved list. Can I still retain my Avery Hill conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company panel?
You have a number of choices open to you here
- Carry on with your existing Avery Hill solicitor but your mortgage company will undoubtedly use a conveyancer from their approved list. The net result is additional fees and likely interruption.
- Get a fresh conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your lawyer to apply to join the mortgage company panel
It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Avery Hill. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be with the lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Avery Hill involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
