Our lawyer has discovered a a problem with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Badminton. The seller’s lawyers have suggested defective title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancer says that he must check that the bank is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?
Even though you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the mortgage company are the client. The appropriate lender specifications have to be complied with.
The Badminton conveyancing firm that I recently instructed on my purchase in Badminton have without warning shut down. I chose them because I had to have a firm on the HSBC conveyancing panel and my previous Badminton lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the HSBC conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers may be able to assist.
I am planning to move house in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Badminton. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this website.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from the selling agent however this can only occur after the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. You should advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Badminton or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Badminton.
Planning on purchasing a house in Badminton. 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 Badminton lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
My offer was accepted on a property in Badminton on 31/3/2020, valuation was booked 4 days later, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Principality and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Are Principality entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
