Topaz Finance Conveyancing Panel : Questions and Answers
I am expecting a mortgage offer from Topaz Finance. I would like to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer. Does the Topaz Finance Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers
Topaz Finance’s approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders represented by the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
My son is in the process of securing a house that has just been built with a mortgage from Topaz Finance. His lawyer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Topaz Finance 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 Topaz Finance conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the Topaz Finance conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the Topaz Finance approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

I am remortgaging my apartment does my lawyer need to be on the Topaz Finance Solicitor panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor but Topaz Finance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Topaz Finance. Solicitors have been chosen? How long does it take for Topaz Finance to send the offer to our conveyancer
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Topaz Finance completed the survey? Have you advised Topaz Finance as your lawyers details and checked that your lawyer is on the Topaz Finance conveyancing panel? sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued
My offer was accepted on an apartment on the 6th February 2014, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Topaz Finance and chasing them on my offer I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Topaz Finance conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Topaz Finance to deal with your lawyers application to be on the Topaz Finance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitors will be accepted.
