My Conveyancer in Great Missenden is not listed on the Yorkshire Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my family solicitor even though they are not on the Yorkshire Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Great Missenden solicitors but Yorkshire Building Society will need to use a conveyancer on their panel. This will result in additional overall legal charges and cause frustration.
- Choose a new solicitor to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check they are on the Yorkshire Building Society panel
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Yorkshire BS as we want to carry out improvements to our home in Great Missenden. Are we obliged to choose a high street Great Missenden solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Yorkshire BS do not ordinarily instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Yorkshire BS panel.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Great Missenden. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office.

However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Great Missenden accepted, the owners do however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Great Missenden. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance started?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Great Missenden conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Great Missenden.

How does conveyancing in Great Missenden differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Great Missenden approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Great Missenden usually acquire the site, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Great Missenden or who has acted in the same development.
