Please help. My Pentre Halkyn solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toconduct Pentre Halkyn conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Do I not have any say here?
You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a mortgage with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Pentre Halkyn conveyancing searches.
we are a couple who are hoping to buy a newbuild apartment in Pentre Halkyn with a loan from Chelsea Building Society.We like our Pentre Halkyn conveyancing practitioner but Chelsea Building Society says her practice is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Chelsea Building Society panel firm or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Chelsea Building Society use our lawyer?
No, not really. The home loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the Chelsea Building Society approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society
