I can't travel far from Goole. What is the rationale as to why all Goole lawyers are not on all lender panels?
As inequitable as it may appear for lenders to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s viewpoint, the the contrary view is that lending institutions are increasingly anxious and consider it necessary to protect them against illegal activities. As a consequence of this concern lenders have consolidated their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.
Our lawyer has uncovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Goole. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer has advised that he must be satisfied that the lender is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
Even though you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their specifications for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the lender are the client. The appropriate lender specifications have to be complied with.
I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Goole?
Do check but the chances are that give you one of their panel conveyancers should you take up the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the lender to see if they offer you a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Goole.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Goole 10 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?
