My fiance and I are hoping to buy a newly converted flat in Hull North with a homeloan from Nottingham Building Society.We would like to retain our Hull North conveyancing lawyer but Nottingham Building Society informed us he's not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Nottingham Building Society panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for a Nottingham Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that solicitors must be on the Nottingham Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham Building Society
How does conveyancing in Hull North differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hull North approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Hull North 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 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 Hull North or who has acted in the same development.
I have been recommended by a number of property agents in Hull North to find a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?
We don’t offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
