I can't travel far from Crynant. Is there a reason why all Crynant lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in banks and building societies pruning less reputable firms from their official list of approved lawyers .
My wife and I are about to complete on the purchase of a house in Crynant but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the vendor of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Bank of Ireland are not allowing this. Why were they informed?
Any conveyancer being on a Bank of Ireland approved list is required to advise Bank of Ireland of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to report the price change to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Crynant.
How does conveyancing in Crynant differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Crynant approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Crynant typically purchase the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Crynant or who has acted in the same development.
