I am not well enough to travel far from Seascale. Can you please spell out why all Seascale conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all lender panels?
Pre- 2008 most mortgage companies displayed an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 conducted a thematic review into fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the solicitors on your panel. Consequently, mortgage companies have since looked to extract more information from law firms about their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Thousands of firms have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms were never going to satisfy the minimum amount of transactions the mortgage companies insisted on.
In the event thatI was to acquire a simple residential homein Seascale mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Seascale?
Any savings you would gain would be limited to the Seascale conveyancing searches. Your conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your vendors lawyer, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a mortgage however it won't be a lot.
As someone not used to conveyancing in Seascale what’s the number one tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Seascale
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Seascale or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. E.g., the vendor, estate agent and sometimes your mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Seascale should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a third party with a vested interest may try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do take action that is against your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
I decided to have a survey done on a house in Seascale in advance of appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to issue a mortgage on such a house.
