One will need to appoint a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the formalities when you need a loan to purchase your property. They will carry out all the relevant due diligence on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. You could appoint a Peacehaven property lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the lawyer selected is not on the lender approved list further fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them.

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
