My husband and I wish to acquire a newbuild apartment in Glossop with a residential mortgage from Britannia.We like our Glossop conveyancing solicitor but Britannia advised that his firm is not listed on their approved list of member firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Britannia panel lawyer or keep our local solicitor and pay for a Britannia panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Britannia use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Britannia conveyancing panel. Until recently, 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Britannia
What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Glossop
It would be unwise to be tempted by the cheapest Glossop conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Glossop. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with HSBC your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The CML Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to HSBC where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Glossop.

I'm buying a new build house in Glossop with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about the extras as it may affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
