We wanted to use a property lawyer in Woore for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our bank Lloyds TSB Bank won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Before the recession most banks had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Woore conveyancing firms would have been on most bank panels. The financial services regulator in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders are increasingly seeing more data from law firms relating to their operations and their employees and set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum number of conveyancing. Many Woore conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have Unblemished track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Woore is one of the many locations where the solicitors we recommend are are authorised to act for Lloyds TSB Bank.
What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Woore
We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Woore conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Woore building society branch on various occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Woore conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Your conveyancing practitioner must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Our offer on a semi in Woore has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Woore. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Principality?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Woore conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Principality approved list. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to press on with searches.
