Find an Approved Solicitor on the MBS Lending Ltd Conveyancing Panel

Frequently asked questions relating to the MBS Lending Ltd Solicitor Panel

I need to swap lawyers as my lawyer is not on the MBS Lending Ltd panel of conveyancing solicitors. How easy is it to change conveyancer?
If you haven't yet instructed a solicitor to do anything for you and have just received quotes, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer you're considering.
Our grandson is in the process of securing a house that has just been built with a home loan from MBS Lending Ltd. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the MBS Lending Ltd conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked.

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 MBS Lending Ltd conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I was scheduled to complete on my flat two days ago. My lawyer’s firm is on the MBS Lending Ltd solicitors panel but has changed address in the past couple of months and had not informed MBS Lending Ltd of their new address. MBS Lending Ltd is now refusing to release my funds as the information from the solicitors isn't correct.
This is as unusual as it is unlucky. Most lender Terms of Conveyancing Panel Appointment specifically oblige the solicitor to inform the lender of an address change. Your solicitor needs to treat this with the utmost urgency. Do speak with or register your concern with the senior partner (assuming he or she is not your direct lawyer). Most lenders would be reasonable in this situation and expedite the resolution of this issue. It may be prudent to enlist the help of your local MBS Lending Ltd branch or your mortgage broker to see if they can help.
I previously instructed online conveyancers based in Birmingham who are on the MBS Lending Ltd solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a separate fee of £175 for dealing with the MBS Lending Ltd mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by MBS Lending Ltd?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitors can charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by MBS Lending Ltd but by your lawyers. Some firms on the MBS Lending Ltd will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.
