My wife and I are intent on purchasing a flat in Rednal. My Conveyancer is not on the mortgage company approved list. Am I still permitted to use my Rednal conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender list of approved lawyers?
You must appoint a lawyer to complete the legal work required if you take out a loan to buy your home. The property lawyer will carry out all the essential due diligence on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place. You may select a Rednal solicitor of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the solicitor selected is not on the mortgage company conveyancing panel supplemental costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so where your solicitor has not previously sought membership they can do so.
My lawyer has uncovered a defect with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Rednal. The other side have suggested defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor says that he must check that the bank is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.
Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Rednal conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the UBS conveyancing panel?
Rednal conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the UBS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from UBS directly.
