Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Trefnant

My wife and I are hoping to purchase a home in Trefnant and have appointed a Trefnant conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our property lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Platform Home Loans Ltd have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Trefnant solicitor is not on their conveyancing panel. What do we do from here?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. 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 Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your mortgage company 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 are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Trefnant lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

The person best placed to deal with your issue is your conveyancer who will determine if he or she is better off negotiating with the lender, owner’s representatives, selling agents or indeed all three taking into account what has gone on in your conveyancing to date.

Generally this is requested to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is as part of the sale price then this should be asked for shortly before contracts are exchanged.
