I am in a contract race with another buyer for a property in Red Lodge. What can I do to speed up matters?
In a situation where the seller is applying a tight deadline to sign contracts we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the area as they will have local contacts and intelligence. It is even conceivable that they may have handled otherhomes in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Red Lodge conveyancing firm. Second, make sure that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is understood that nearly one in five of Red Lodge conveyancing deals are suspended or derailed after finding out that a purchaser’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the buying process being frustrated by as much as 21 days. It is said that this issue impacts approximately one hundred thousand home sales every year. Almost all Red Lodge conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check as early as possible.
Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Red Lodge conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel?
Red Lodge conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as RBS, do Red Lodge solicitors incur an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
It is not clear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my Red Lodge building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Red Lodge conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the mortgage company panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Intending to buy a flat in Red Lodge. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Red Lodge conveyancing practitioner is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

Should I be suspicious that estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Red Lodge conveyancing firm?
As with lots of professional services, often referrals from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are many people with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all put forward lawyers to appoint. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there may be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that many banks specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.
