My wife and I are looking to buy a house in Mudeford and have instructed a Mudeford conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Britannia have this afternoon contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Mudeford lawyer is not on their conveyancing panel. What do we do from here?

Where you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Mudeford solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

Should one as executor remove a deceased person's name from the title deeds for a house in Mudeford?

If a Mudeford property is co-owned and one of the owners passes away, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to amend the title as when it comes to a disposal your lawyer would just be asked to evidence why the joint proprietor is missing from the contract, ordinarily this takes the form of the probate documents.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing more straight forward in the future you may arrange to have the deceased party removed from the title entries by applying to the land registry with proof of the death. There is no fee from the Registry for this service.
