We are purchasing a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Seaton who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Seaton.

We are hoping to buy a purpose built flat in Seaton with a homeloan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd.We use our Seaton conveyancing practitioner but Godiva Mortgages Ltd says she’s not on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Godiva Mortgages Ltd panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Godiva Mortgages Ltd approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Godiva Mortgages Ltd

I am soon to complete on the purchase a property in Seaton but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have negotiated compensation from the seller of five thousand pounds taking the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but the lender will not permit this. Should they have been involved?

Any lawyer that is on a lender approved list is duty bound to advise the mortgage company of any amendments to the sale figure. In the event that you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the reduction to your bank then they would need to discontinue acting for you and the lender.
