We are hoping to buy a 2 bedroom apartment in Brislington with a homeloan from Coventry Building Society.We use our Brislington conveyancing practitioner but Coventry Building Society advised that he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Coventry Building Society panel firm or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the Coventry Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Coventry Building Society
I have todaydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Brislington for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest way to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Brislington conveyancing specialists.
Do I need to be concerned about third parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Brislington conveyancing company?
As is the case with many professional services, often recommendations from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all recommend conveyancers to instruct. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to select your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you have to use for the lender related work in your house move.
In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a house in Monmouth but I am based in Brislington. My solicitor (based 260 kilometers from meneeds me to sign a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising.
