Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Werrington

I am progressing with the sale of my maisonette in Werrington and the EA has just called to say that the buyers are appointing a new solicitor. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only work with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. Why would a big named mortgage company only engage with certain law firms rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Werrington ?

Banks have always had panels of law firms they are content to work with, but in the past few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for decades.

Lending institutions point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any impact on this.

I am selling my apartment in Werrington. Will my solicitor have to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently at the moment.

Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Werrington. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we will need to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

When it comes to lenders such as Virgin Money, do Werrington property lawyers incur a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Werrington. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Werrington conveyancer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two flats in Werrington both have approximately forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in Werrington. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
