I do hope you can help me. My Danbury conveyancer is informing me me that he has toconduct Danbury conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Do I not have a choice here?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Danbury conveyancing searches.
It is 10 years ago since I bought my house in Danbury. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Danbury relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
My Solicitor in Danbury is not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd Approved Panel. Can I still retain my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Danbury solicitors but Accord Mortgages Ltd will need to use a conveyancer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the overall conveyancing fees and cause delays.
- Choose a new lawyer to to deal with the purchase, remembering to check they are Accord Mortgages Ltd approved.
- Try to convince your Accord Mortgages Ltd solicitor to attempt to join the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Danbury and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Danbury lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Danbury. We have lived in Danbury for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
