JPMorgan Conveyancing Panel Sample Enquires to our Call Center

A conveyancer my husband and I had intended to instruct on a purchase said he will levy higher legal fees if my lender is because of their unusual legal requirements. Am I likely to be frustrated using JPMorgan? Is JPMorgan conveyancing so much more difficult?
JPMorgan conveyancing requirements for their panel are no better or no more complicated than most lenders. It is the case now the CML Handbook, the "bible" used by solicitors to establish lender requirements, is different for each lender. It is not clear if your lawyer is on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel. If they are not, this does add further risk of delay as JPMorgan will appoint their own solicitors to look after their interest.
I am due to complete my purchase next Thursday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as he informs me that he is duty bound to validate that it is in order for JPMorgan. What risks do JPMorgan expect the insurance to cover?

There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in JPMorgan’s Part 2 requirements of the CML Handbook (last updated on JPMorgan). Being on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel your lawyer is expect to follow these requirements.

The firm that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Newcastle has without warning closed. I only went with them because I needed a lawyer on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel and my preferred lawyer was not. I gave them a cheque for £150 in advance. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers may be able to assist
Hi, thinking about buying a house off my mate. Assuming we can agree a figure, what’s the best way to proceed? I hope to get a mortgage with JPMorgan. Is it possible to avoid using solicitors to save us both money? My dad reckons back in the day he did a lot of it himself, just went into the land registry office and providing them with the info they needed himself
If you are getting a mortgage with JPMorgan involved you will need to appoint a solicitor on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel. We would not encourage you to both use the same solicitors' firm. There are clear conflict of interest issues and it's not going to make a huge difference to the speed of the overall process. So as not to hold things us you should pass on your solicitors details to JPMorgan. Feel free to use our search tool to look for a licensed conveyancer or solicitor on the JPMorgan conveyancing panel.
The mortgage over my property is with JPMorgan. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform JPMorgan?
JPMorgan must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of JPMorgan’s mortgage conditions. It may be that JPMorgan will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact JPMorgan directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a JPMorgan conveyancing panel firm.
My ex -wife’s name is on the JPMorgan mortgage of my property but not on the land registry. The apartment was transferred to me on our divorce many years ago by way of a sealed court order. Does my ex still have a say on the sale even though the land registry showing the property in my name alone? Will I be required to take her name of the JPMorgan mortgage in order to sell?
In terms of the JPMorgan mortgage, it is unusual that your ex-wife’s name remains on the mortgage but not on the title. It is conceivable that this is an oversight on the part of your conveyancers to ensure that her name was removed or even an administrative error on the part of JPMorgan in failing to update their data. In any event, it should cause difficulty providing her name no longer appears on the Land Registry title and you have a court order ordering that the property is transferred to you.
