I plan on acquiring a maisonette in Rottingdean. My Conveyancer is not listed on the bank solicitor panel. Is it possible for me to retain my Rottingdean conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?
Various options include
- Proceed with your preferred Rottingdean lawyer but your lender will no doubt appoint a conveyancing practitioner from their approved list. The net result is additional fees together with probable delay.
- Appoint a new conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the lender conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to pull out all the stops to join the lender’s panel of solicitors
We are about to sign contracts for a ground floor flat in Rottingdean. We have hit a snag. The mortgage offer with Aldermore runs out on 25/11/2020 but the sellers are putting forward a completion date of 27/11/2020. Is it possible to extend the mortgage expiry date?
The person best placed to address this issue is your lawyer who is in a position to determine if he or she is corresponding with the mortgage company, vendor’s solicitors, property agents or indeed all three based on the history of your transaction as of today.

Do I need to be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Rottingdean conveyancing practice?
As with many service providers, often referrals from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all recommend lawyers to choose. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that some lenders have an approved list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
