My lawyer has discovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the flat we are buying in Camelford. The other side have put forward title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor says that he must check that the bank is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the mortgage company are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.
My husband and I are hoping to buy a 2 bedroom apartment in Camelford with a residential mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd.We have a Camelford conveyancing practitioner but Platform Home Loans Ltd informed us his firm is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Platform Home Loans Ltd panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and pay for a Platform Home Loans Ltd panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Platform Home Loans Ltd use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Platform Home Loans Ltd approved list. 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Platform Home Loans Ltd
I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Camelford in advance of instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to grant a mortgage on such a home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Camelford. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Camelford to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
