My Conveyancer in Llantwit Fardre is not listed on the Alliance & Leicester Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to use my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Alliance & Leicester approved list?
Your options are as follows:
- Carry on with your preferred Llantwit Fardre solicitors but Alliance & Leicester will need to instruct a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the overall conveyancing charges and cause frustration.
- Find a new lawyer to act in the purchase, remembering to check they are on the Alliance & Leicester panel
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Llantwit Fardre off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Aldermore. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
It is not clear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my Llantwit Fardre building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Llantwit Fardre conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.
As long as the conveyancer is on the lender panel, she or he must follow the CML Handbook conditions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Llantwit Fardre is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
How does conveyancing in Llantwit Fardre differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Llantwit Fardre contact 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 house builders in Llantwit Fardre typically acquire the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Llantwit Fardre or who has acted in the same development.
Should I be wary that estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Llantwit Fardre conveyancing firm?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often suggestions from connections can be most helpful. But there are numerous people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all put forward solicitors to instruct. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of banks specify a panel list of law firms you have to use for the mortgage related work in your home move.
