My wife and I are intending to purchase a 3 bedroom flat in Bourton on the Water with a mortgage. We have a Bourton on the Water solicitor, however the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel firms or continue with our Bourton on the Water conveyancer as well as pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We regard this is unjust; can we not demand that the mortgage company use our Bourton on the Water property lawyer ?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 Bourton on the Water conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
At what point will exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Bourton on the Water and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Bourton on the Water you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. However, the firms we work with provide a national conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Bourton on the Water)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Bourton on the Water. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Aldermore approved list of lawyers. Could you assist?
The first thing to do is call the conveyancer and ask them if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you should get in touch with Aldermore who may be able to help.
I am buying a new build house in Bourton on the Water with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my lawyer about the side-deal as it will affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a freehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the local agent to execute conveyancing in Bourton on the Water. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
