I plan on acquiring a ground floor flat in Frodsham. My property lawyer is not listed on the mortgage company conveyancing list. Can I still appoint my Frodsham conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender panel?
One will need to have a lawyer to deal with the legal work required when you require a loan to purchase your property. The conveyancing practitioner will carry out all the appropriate legal checks on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place. You may appoint a Frodsham property lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the solicitor selected is not on the lender conveyancing panel additional fees will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not in the past sought membership they should do so.
My partner and I are purchasing a newly built flat in Frodsham and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the builder. I am under pressure to exchange contracts and I would rather not delay deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

How does conveyancing in Frodsham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Frodsham come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Frodsham typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Frodsham or who has acted in the same development.
