I am expecting a mortgage offer from Lloyds. I hope to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Devon. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We are planning to buy with Melton Mowbray Building Society. I went into 3 or 4 high street practices but am struggling to find a Devon conveyancing firm on the Melton Mowbray Building Society panel. Could you assist?
Please do make use of the search tool on this site. Please choose the building society and type Devon or your location and you will see a number of lawyer offices in Devon or near you.
Can you point me to a directory of Co-operative panel conveyancers in Devon on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lenders make their panel listings open the public on the web. If you are seeking to appoint a Devon property lawyer on the Co-operative please use our facility.
is it true that all Devon conveyancing solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be regulated by the CLC.
Bank of Ireland have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in Devon has been agreed to, what happens next?
Your estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the lender’s panel). Contact Bank of Ireland or your broker and complete any relevant forms. Bank of Ireland will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or owners to book a slot for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days to receive the mortgage offer. Bank of Ireland will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Devon.
