We are purchasing a 3 bedroom flat in Howden with a mortgage. We like our Howden lawyer, but the lender says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel firms or continue with our Howden solicitor and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. This feels very unfair; can we not demand that the mortgage company use our Howden lawyer ?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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 Howden conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Howden and do I need to be at the conveyancers branch?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Howden you are welcome to come in to sign documents. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the firm to address the formalities at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Howden)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
