Me and my fiance are purchasing a 1 bedroom apartment in Tregaron with a mortgage. We like our Tregaron lawyer, but the bank says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no option but to use one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or continue with our Tregaron lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We feel that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Tregaron conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
We are purchasing a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Tregaron who is on the Nationwide solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nationwide . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Tregaron.
I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of stalling in Tregaron conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Tregaron.
My wife and I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Tregaron. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Chelsea Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Chelsea Building Society to clarify?
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Tregaron and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
