My husband and I are hoping to acquire a 2 bedroom apartment in Holmrook with a mortgage. We have a Holmrook lawyer, however the mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to select one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or retain our Holmrook conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. This feels very unfair; can we not insist that the bank use our Holmrook solicitor ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 Holmrook conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

About to purchase apartment in Holmrook.

How does conveyancing in Holmrook differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Holmrook come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Holmrook tend to 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Holmrook or who has acted in the same development.
