My conveyancer has uncovered a defect with the lease for the property we are buying in East Riding Villages. The seller’s lawyers have suggested defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor says that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their specifications for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.
When does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in East Riding Villages and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?
If you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in East Riding Villages you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend offer a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in East Riding Villages)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
