My husband and I decided to purchase a 2 bedroom flat in Evesham with a residential mortgage from Leeds Building Society.We would like to retain our Evesham conveyancing solicitor but Leeds Building Society informed us he's not listed on their approved list of member firms. we are left little option but to use a Leeds Building Society panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The home loan offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Evesham conveyancing lawyers were appointed. How long does it take for Nationwide to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Nationwide completed the survey? Have you advised Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Evesham. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £225. Not long after, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Aldermore panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Principality. Is it usual for Principality to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Evesham is approved on their conveyancing panel? Principality have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Just bought a semi-detached house in Evesham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Evesham conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are addressed.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Evesham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property so 'speed' is not usually primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Evesham ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders will refuse to grant a mortgage on such a home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Evesham.
