I am getting a offer of a home loan from Nat West. I would like to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Beckermet. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel allow for conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I am soon to complete buying a property in Beckermet but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor in the sum of £2k in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but Nationwide will not permit this. Should they have been informed?
The lawyer that is on a Nationwide approved list is required to disclose to Nationwide of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to notify the reduction to Nationwide then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nationwide and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Beckermet.
