I selected a Crawcrook based firm for our conveyancing in Crawcrook today. Looking through the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatwe are liable for costs even if the movedoes not happen. Should I go with them or choose an internet lawyer who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Crawcrook?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to neutralise those conveyances that do not go ahead. Please beware that these arrangements generally do not cover disbursements e.g. Crawcrook conveyancing search expenses.
Our Crawcrook solicitor has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor says that he needs to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s stance correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
My fiance and I are buying a newbuild flat in Crawcrook with a loan from The Mortgage Works.We use our Crawcrook conveyancing lawyer but The Mortgage Works says she’s not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Mortgage Works panel firm or retain our local solicitor and fork out for a The Mortgage Works panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that The Mortgage Works use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks 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 The Mortgage Works
My partner has urged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Crawcrook. Should I use them?
There are no two ways about it it’s preferable to select a conveyancing lawyer is to seek referrals from friends or relatives who have experience in using the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.
