Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Glossop

I am selling my maisonette in Glossop and the estate agent has just called to warn that the purchasers are switching law firm. The reason given is that the lender will only deal with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. Why would a leading lender only engage with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to appoint to handle their conveyancing in Glossop ?

Mortgage companies have always had panels of law firms that can act for them, but in the last few years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have represented them for more than 25 years.

Lenders point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

At what point does exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Glossop and am I required to be at the conveyancers office?

If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Glossop you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the law practices we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the firm to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Glossop)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Aldermore, do Glossop conveyancing practitioners face an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

Is there a list of Leeds Building Society panel solicitors in Glossop on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings available over the internet. If you are seeking to appoint a Glossop conveyancing practitioner on the Leeds Building Society please use our facility.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Glossop. I have a mortgage agreed with HSBC. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

My step-father has recommend that I appoint his conveyancers in Glossop. Do I follow his guidance?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Glossop conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to get referrals from friends or family who have actually experience in using the conveyancer that you are are thinking of instructing.

My wife and I have had DIP from Clydesdale who have advised we could borrow up to £350k. At what point do we need to appoint a solicitor for conveyancing? Glossop is where we plan to move to.

You can appoint a lawyer now so that the solicitor can open the ledger so they can do their AML checks etc. Once you wish them to start work you will be asked for a payment on account usually approximately £175. That should normally be after you have the mortgage offer and survey report, nevertheless should you want to speed the process you can get going sooner albeit risking some money.
