I am obtaining a offer of a home loan from Santander. I hope to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Northallerton. Does the Santander Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Santander approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We are purchasing a newly constructed duplex in Northallerton and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the lender to reveal incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to exchange and my preference is not to delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
We're in Northallerton, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Nationwide , and our solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Co-operative, do Northallerton conveyancers incur a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any lender fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Bank of Ireland are being pedantic. The Northallerton solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Northallerton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Northallerton conveyancing practitioner is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
Been reading online that Northallerton solicitors are more expensive than licensed conveyancers in Northallerton when it comes to buying a property. So is it better if I use a conveyancer or a solicitor where I am buying for my home move in Northallerton.
When it comes to conveyancing in Northallerton the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
