I am not well enough to travel far from Wragby. I would like to know the logic why all Wragby lawyers are not on all bank panels?
As inequitable as it may appear for lenders to restrict who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s perspective, the the contrary view is that mortgage companies are becoming ever more anxious and feel it essential to protect them against illegal activities. As a result of this concern banks have restricted their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.
is it true that all Wragby solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. The majority of lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be governed by the CLC.
My wife and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Bank of Ireland as we wish to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Wragby. Do we need to choose a local Wragby solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Bank of Ireland would not normally instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
About to purchase maisonette in Wragby. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham 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 Wragby lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Wragby differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Wragby contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Wragby usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Wragby or who has acted in the same development.
