I am obtaining a mortgage with Lloyds. I would like to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Northleach. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
We're in Northleach, First timers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is UBS , and our solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the UBS 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.
I am planning to move home in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Northleach. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the selling agent however this should only happen after the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you can tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Northleach or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Northleach.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from UBS as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Northleach. Are we obliged to select a high street Northleach solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
UBS would not normally appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the UBS list.
The mortgage over my property is with Lloyds for my property in Northleach. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Lloyds?
Lloyds must be informed of your intention before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Lloyds will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Lloyds directly. You need not do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel firm.

My husband and I are buying a first floor flat in Northleach. When we first instructed lawyer, they assured us that they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. The financial adviser called just now to advise that they don't appear to be on the Principality approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Do we simply choose a new solicitor that is on their panel or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with Principality appointing their own approved conveyancing practitioner.
Where you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchaser’s solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the lawyer has to satisfy. Some banks now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancer should contact Principality to find out 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 don't have to instruct a firm on Principality's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Northleach lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another property lawyer into the mix.
