I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Perry Barr. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £175. A few days later, the lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Aldermore panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

The estate agent will wish to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list).

How does conveyancing in Perry Barr differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Perry Barr contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Perry Barr usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Perry Barr or who has acted in the same development.

My conveyancers in Perry Barr have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?

Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the lender Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
