I am getting a mortgage offer from Nat West. I hope to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Henley On Thames. Does the Nat West Solicitor panel include conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Nat West approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
My conveyancer has discovered a a problem with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Henley On Thames. 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 says that he must ensure that the lender is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company 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 provisions. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to have a meeting at the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Henley On Thames so that I can attend their offices when needed.
As opposed to 15 years ago, almost all lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. It will still be necessary for you to supply ID documents and there are still manifest benefits to instructing a locally based practitioner, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Henley On Thames.
I require expedited conveyancing in Henley On Thames as I have a deadline to complete inside one month. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

I'm purchasing a new build house in Henley On Thames benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
