My wife and I are planning to purchase a property in Taplow and have appointed a Taplow conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our solicitor has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Virgin Money have this evening contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Taplow lawyer is not on their conveyancing panel. What do we do from here?
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Taplow solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
We note that you have a search directory listing firms on the TSB conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I appoint them for our conveyancing in Taplow?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the TSB conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Taplow.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Taplow 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware precisely where to locate all the appropriate paperwork so you may purchase or dispose of your property without a hitch. Where duplicates are not available, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your premises.
