I plan on acquiring property in Swinton. My lawyer has never been on on the bank solicitor panel. Am I still permitted to use my Swinton conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel?
Various options include
- Carry on with your preferred Swinton solicitor but your lender will undoubtedly appoint a solicitor from their approved list. The net result is additional fees and probable interruption.
- Get a fresh conveyancer to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Convince your property lawyer to pull out all the stops to join the mortgage company panel of solicitors
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Swinton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Swinton. Having lived in Swinton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

You need to be pragmatic concerning timelines. Moving home in Swinton usually takes about two months. This time period is not because solicitor are slow and purposely delay matters. The amount of money involved in buying any residence is so high, the buyer’s conveyancing practitioner having to raise a whole range of queries, searches and supplemental checks to protect the buyer and their lender (if there is to be a mortgage) from expensive, avoidable problems. Conveyancing in Swinton involves seeking information from an array of different parties, including other conveyancer, local councils, private companies, building societies and banks. Some of these are well organised. Others are not. It is worth noting that, no matter how quickly your lawyer do their work, if the people you are buying from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can go ahead until they are.
