My partner and I are purchasing a new build flat in Tyne And Wear and my lawyer is informing me that she has to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the builder. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange and I would rather not prolong matters. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
we are a couple who decided to purchase a newbuild flat in Tyne And Wear with a mortgage from Barclays .We use our Tyne And Wear conveyancing solicitor but Barclays informed us he's not on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Barclays panel firm or keep our local solicitor and fork out for a Barclays panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Barclays use our lawyer?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the Barclays solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barclays

Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend.
