LendInvest Conveyancing Panel Example Support Desk Enquires

My financial adviser has says he needs my lawyer’ panel reference for the LendInvest conveyancing panel. What is the best way to discover this. I have called my local LendInvest branch but they have not responded to me.
Have you tried speaking to your lawyer about this?. A law firm is likely to keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable their conveyancing panel details for LendInvest.
Can you help?. For no fault of my lawyer but, the conveyancing for my house purchase has been going on for months. The Local Authority Search from LendInvest was dated random date and we have agreed a date for me to move into the property on 6 months + 3. My solicitor informs me that as she is on the LendInvest conveyancing panel she needs to redo the searches as they are no longer valid.
One of the many conditions to being on the LendInvest approved panel is to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 obligations (last updated for this lender on LendInvest)which specifies that a local authority search be not more than 6 months old. You should nevertheless ask your lawyer to check whether something called ‘search validation’ indemnity insurance is acceptable to LendInvest.
I see that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the LendInvest conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I appoint them for my own house purchase?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the LendInvest conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint.
I am considering applying for a LendInvest mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for LendInvest?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor but LendInvest will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with LendInvest. Solicitors have been instructed? How long does it take for LendInvest to send the offer to our conveyancer
There is no definitive answer here. Have LendInvest done the valuation? Have you advised LendInvest as your lawyers details and checked that your lawyer is on the LendInvest conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through
I have today made my last payment due on mortgage with LendInvest. I assume I don't need a solicitor on the LendInvest panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your LendInvest mortgage they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the LendInvest mortgage from the register. LendInvest,and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage: but are not moving to another property where the LendInvest has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and the LendInvest has instructed the Land Registry to do so The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your LendInvest mortgage has been paid off.
My offer on house has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, but not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties booked. My conveyancing solicitor has been instructed. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage app going with LendInvest?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey/valuation, conveyancing search costs, etc). First you should check that your solicitor is on the LendInvest conveyancing panel. As to the next stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot mortgage some buyers would pally for the mortgage with LendInvest and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to press on with searches.
