we are a couple who are hoping to buy a purpose built flat in Powys with a mortgage from Barclays .We like our Powys conveyancing lawyer but Barclays advised that he's not listed on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Barclays panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the Barclays solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms 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 Barclays
I am buying a new build flat in Powys. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Powys
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
Given that I am about to spend 450k on a terraced house in Powys I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor regarding thehome move prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
This is something that we encourage - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer who will be doing your conveyancing in Powys.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Powys should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
My brother mentioned that before selecting a conveyancing lawyer they must be approved by your bank. It happens to be my first house move but I have an AIP via HSBC and I already have a family conveyancing lawyer in Powys lined up. Can Santander require an approved solicitor to be instructed? If so, where do I find that list for my conveyancing in Powys?
You should use a solicitor that is on the Santander panel. The first thing to do is telephone your chosen Powys conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Santander panel. If they are not on the panel you have numerous choices open to you here:
- Complete the deal with your existing Powys property lawyer but Santander will no doubt retain a lawyer on their approved list. The net impact is additional fees together with potential delay.
- Get a fresh conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the Santander conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your conveyancer to apply to join the bank panel.
