My Solicitor in Drybrook is not on the Clydesdale Conveyancing Panel. Can I still use my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Clydesdale panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Carry on with your existing Drybrook lawyers but Clydesdale will need to use a conveyancer on their list of acceptable firms. This will result in additional overall conveyancing fees as well as cause delays.
- Get an alternative lawyer to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check they are on the Clydesdale panel
I am selling our house in Drybrook and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Drybrook. We have lived in Drybrook for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You should 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)
Me and my partner are planning to purchase a three bedroom maisonettein Drybrook with a mortgage from a bank. We have a conveyancer in Drybrook however our bank says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our mortgage company panel solicitors or keep our Drybrook conveyancer and incur the extra legals for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Drybrook lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The lender mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender's conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Drybrook : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
