My wife and I are acquiring a maisonette in Wraysbury. My lawyer is not listed on the bank conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to retain my Wraysbury conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender approved list?
You must use a conveyancing practitioner to complete the legal work required when you need a loan to purchase your home. The property lawyer will conduct all the essential legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in order. One can appoint a Wraysbury lawyer of your choosing. However, where the conveyancer selected is not a member of the lender approved list supplemental charges will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so where your conveyancer has not historically sought membership they should do so.

How does conveyancing in Wraysbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Wraysbury come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Wraysbury tend to acquire 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wraysbury or who has acted in the same development.
