Me and my husband are purchasing a ground floor flat in Cringleford. My lawyer has never been on on the lender conveyancing list. Is it possible for me to appoint my Cringleford conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
You must instruct a lawyer to complete the legal work required if you require a loan to purchase your home. The conveyancing practitioner will carry out all the necessary due diligence on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in order. One could instruct a Cringleford solicitor of your choice. However, if the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not a member of the lender solicitor panel further charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so if your lawyer has not in the past sought membership they should do so.

We previously selected conveyancers located in Cringleford on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further charge for the legal aspects of the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Cringleford conveyancer. Numerous firms on the Coventry BS panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.
I have a mortgage with Barclays for my property in Cringleford. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Barclays?
Your original mortgage agreement with Barclays will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Barclays’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Barclays directly. You need not do this via a Barclays conveyancing panel lawyer.
