My Solicitor has never been on on the Marsden Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Marsden Building Society list of approved lawyers?
You will need to have a conveyancer complete the legal work required when you take out a Marsden Building Society mortgage to buy your property. They’ll carry out all the necessary legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in place. You can instruct a conveyancing firm of your choice. However, if the firm selected is not a member of the Marsden Building Society conveyancing panel additional costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by Marsden Building Society. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they can do so.
My son is buying a new build apartment with a home loan from Marsden Building Society. His lawyer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Marsden Building Society conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested.
The Developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it.
The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Marsden Building Society conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
