My wife and I are intending to acquire a 3 bedroom flat in Coombe Dingle with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Coombe Dingle lawyer, however the bank advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel solicitors or retain our Coombe Dingle solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. This seems very unfair; are we not able to require that the mortgage company use our Coombe Dingle solicitor ?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms 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 Coombe Dingle conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Coombe Dingle. Conveyancing is needed. What is next?
Having legally committed yourself to purchase you now have to instruct a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are faced with a pending a fixed date to complete the deal. All auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke legal set of papers. This should include most,if not all of the documents that your conveyancer will need. If you have purchased leasehold property the auction papers should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork pertinent to leasehold premises. You should pass this on to the lawyer instructed by you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that your finances are in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
Is there a list of Skipton panel solicitors in Coombe Dingle on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings visible online.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Coombe Dingle. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Coombe Dingle conveyancing practitioner is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
I have been told that property searches are the main cause of delay in Coombe Dingle conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Coombe Dingle.

Me and my partner are planning to purchase a 2 room flatin Coombe Dingle with a mortgage from a mortgage company. We have a conveyancer in Coombe Dingle yet our bank inform us now that she’s not on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose one of the our bank panel solicitors or stay with our Coombe Dingle conveyancer and incur the extra costs for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The lender home loan issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Coombe Dingle : a mortgagee 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
