We wanted to use a property lawyer in Chesham Bois for our house move. Our financial adviser has since notified us that our mortgage company HSBC Bank won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?
Banks normally imposes restrictions either the type or the volume of conveyancing practices on their member panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have limited the number of firms they permit to act for them. You should note that HSBC Bank have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of HSBC Bank Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there remains mixed views regarding the extent of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicate that thousands of law firms, including some in or near Chesham Bois only carry out one or two conveyances per annum.
How does conveyancing in Chesham Bois differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Chesham Bois approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Chesham Bois usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Chesham Bois or who has acted in the same development.
We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Chesham Bois
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Chesham Bois conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
