I plan on buying residence in Cleator Moor. My Conveyancer is not on the bank approved list. Is it possible for me to continue with my Cleator Moor conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company approved list?
You have a number of alternatives available to you here
- Carry on with your preferred Cleator Moor conveyancer but your lender will undoubtedly instruct a conveyancer from their approved panel. The net result is additional charges and potential interruption.
- Get a fresh conveyancer to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your conveyancing practitioner to seek to join the mortgage company panel
We are only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Cleator Moor and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to hold matters up?
Your property lawyer is legally required to check with mortgage company to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
