My husband and I are looking to purchase a property in Grange Park and have instructed a Grange Park conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our property lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. National Westminster Bank have this morning contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Grange Park lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Is this a problem?
Where you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Grange Park solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
At what point will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Grange Park and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Grange Park you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply a national conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Grange Park)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Grange Park. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just had a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as usual given that all rents and service invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
