we are a couple who are buying a 2 bedroom flat in Conisborough with a loan from Santander.We use our Conisborough conveyancing solicitor but Santander says her practice is not listed on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Santander panel firm or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them.

No, not really. The home loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Santander solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Santander
How does conveyancing in Conisborough differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Conisborough contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Conisborough usually acquire the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Conisborough or who has acted in the same development.
