I went with a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Osterley Park today. After carefully reading the Terms and Conditions I seeI am responsible for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and appoint a web based firm promising no completion no cost conveyancing in Osterley Park?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to counteract the cases that do not proceed. Please beware that such offerings rarely cover outlay for instance Osterley Park conveyancing search fees.
Is it the case that all Osterley Park CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Clydesdale conveyancing list of approved firms?
Some major lenders now utilise CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
We previously selected conveyancing lawyers locally in Osterley Park on the Kent Reliance solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me an additional sum for handling the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Kent Reliance?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer may charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Osterley Park lawyer. Numerous firms on the Kent Reliance panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.
I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Osterley Park bank branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Osterley Park conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
The lawyer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
