I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Halifax. I intend to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Pocklington. Does the Halifax Conveyancing panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Halifax approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Skipton Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Pocklington?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
How does conveyancing in Pocklington differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Pocklington contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Pocklington tend to 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pocklington or who has acted in the same development.
