Please help. My Cullompton lawyer is informing me me that she is duty bound toapply for Cullompton conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. Is my conveyancer right?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cullompton conveyancing searches.
is it true that all Cullompton solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the CLC.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Clydesdale. Cullompton conveyancing practitioners have been appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Clydesdale?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Clydesdale done the valuation? Have you advised Clydesdale as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am purchasing a property in Cullompton. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. TSB have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is TSB your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The CML Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to TSB where a lease fails to satisfy these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Cullompton.
