Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Shenley Brook End. Can you please clarify why all Shenley Brook End lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Banks normally restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Frequent examples of such restriction(s) being that the firm must have at least two partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some banks decided to restrict the size of their panel they allow to act for them. It is worth noting that mortgage companies have no liability for the standard of advice supplied by any Shenley Brook End conveyancing practitioner on their approved list. Increases in mortgage fraud was the key driver in the culling of solicitor panels in the last decade even though there are opposing points of view about whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Statistics via HMLR exposes that thousands of law practices only carry out a couple of conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel consolidation question why law firms should have the right to remain on a conveyancing panel when it is apparent that property law is not their primary expertise?
We are about to exchange contracts for a ground floor flat in Shenley Brook End. We have hit a stumbling block. Our mortgage offer with Platform Home Loans Ltd expires on 26/7/2023 but the owners are suggesting a completion date of 28/7/2023. Can one extend the mortgage expiry date?
The best person to address this concern is your solicitors who should assess whether they should be discussing with the bank, seller’s solicitors, selling agents or possibly all parties given the history of your transaction to date.
I am due to move property in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Shenley Brook End. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the estate agent however this can only be done after the previous owners conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. After that you should inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in Shenley Brook End or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Shenley Brook End.
is it true that all Shenley Brook End conveyancing solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the CLC.
It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Shenley Brook End bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Shenley Brook End conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
The solicitor must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your lender. 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
