Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Olney

I plan on purchasing property in Olney. My Solicitor has never been on on the mortgage company approved panel. Am I still permitted to use my Olney conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender panel?

One must have a lawyer to deal with the legal work required if you need a mortgage to buy your property. They will conduct all the essential due diligence on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. One can appoint a Olney property lawyer of your choice. However, if the conveyancing practitioner selected is not a member of the mortgage company conveyancing panel further fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your solicitor has not in the past applied for membership they can do so.

The Olney conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my purchase in Olney have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I had to have a lawyer on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel and my previous Olney lawyer was not. I issued them a cheque for £250 in advance. What should be my next steps?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to help.

Is there a list of Coventry BS panel conveyancers in Olney on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public on the web. If you are looking for a Olney property lawyer on the Coventry BS please use our tool.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Yorkshire BS are being a right pain. The Olney solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Yorkshire BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS 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.

My offer was accepted on a house in Olney on 25/4/2024, valuation was booked 2 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
