Most buyers of new build premises in Telford contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Telford tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Telford or who has acted in the same development.

My partner and I are acquiring a garden flat in Telford. At the time of instructing our property lawyer, we were told they were on all mainstream bank panels. Our mortgage broker contacted us today to advise that they are not on the TSB approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Do we just choose a new conveyancer that is on their panel or do we pay for dual representation, with TSB appointing their own preferred solicitor.

If you are purchasing a property needing a mortgage it is usual for the buyer’s solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the conveyancing practitioner to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the solicitor has to satisfy. Some mortgage companies now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should call TSB to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on TSB's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Telford solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another conveyancer into the mix.
