We previously appointed conveyancers locally in Exton on the Nationwide solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further fee for dealing with the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor may levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Nationwide but by your Exton conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the Nationwide panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
Can I be sure that the Exton conveyancing solicitor on the Leeds Building Society panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Exton seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor handling your transaction.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Exton on 15/10/2018, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Principality and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue a mortgage 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.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Exton?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Exton. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
