My mortgage broker says he needs my Walsall solicitor’s panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have called my local Walsall office but they don't know it.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Walsall lawyer . They maintain a central record lender panel numbers.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Walsall is more expensive?
Walsall leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Principality Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Walsall?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
The deeds to my home are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Walsall 5 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?
In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor should be aware precisely where to find all the suitable paperwork so you can buy or sell your house without a hitch. If duplicates are not available, your lawyer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the property.
