Is it correct that all Broughton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their panels.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Broughton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Our sealed bid on a property in Broughton has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Broughton. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Broughton conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Broughton.
My wife and I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Broughton. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays . I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Barclays to clarify?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Broughton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
