My fiance and I are intent on buying a maisonette in Kings Heath. My Solicitor is not on the lender solicitor list. Am I still permitted to use my Kings Heath conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
One will need to instruct a property lawyer to complete the legal work required when you require a mortgage to buy your property. They will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in order. You may select a Kings Heath solicitor of your choosing. However, where the solicitor appointed is not on the bank conveyancing panel additional charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so where your conveyancer has not historically applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
