My husband and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Morganstown with a mortgage. We like our Morganstown conveyancer, but the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to use one of the mortgage company panel firms or retain our Morganstown property lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This feels very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. Your mortgage offer 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 Morganstown conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
Is there a search tool that I can utilise to check that the solicitor conducting my conveyancing in Morganstown is on the lender’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Accord Mortgages Ltd thus spending £187.00 plus VAT in another set of conveyancing fees.
Feel free to take advantage of the find a lender approved solicitor tool on this site. Pick the lender and type ‘Morganstown’ or your preferred area and you will be presented with numerous conveyancers offices in Morganstown or by proximity to you.
I got the keys to my house on 2 October and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Morganstown said it will be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Morganstown uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Morganstown registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property thus 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
