Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Fenny Stratford conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel?
Fenny Stratford conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Yorkshire BS directly.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Fenny Stratford. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Fenny Stratford?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Yorkshire BS as we want to carry out alterations to our property in Fenny Stratford. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Fenny Stratford solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Yorkshire BS would not normally instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Yorkshire BS list.
I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Fenny Stratford. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £175. A couple of days later, the property lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the HSBC 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 HSBC 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.
