Is it possible for conveyancing in Anstey to be finalised in less than two weeks?
In the event that the seller is applying a tight deadline for your conveyancing it is advisable to make sure that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will make use of local contacts and knowledge. It is even conceivable that they would have handled otherhouses in the same road. Therefore consider using a Anstey conveyancing firm. Second, double check that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is believed that 18% of Anstey conveyancing deals are delayed or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal transfer of property being delayed by almost 21 days. It is said that this issue affects approximately 100,000 home moves every year. Many Anstey conveyancing practices can not represent certain banks so do check at the outset.

I have paid off my mortgage with HSBC. I assume I don't need a Anstey solicitor on the HSBC panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your HSBC 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 HSBC mortgage from the register. HSBC, 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 HSBC has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- HSBC has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Planning on purchasing a flat in Anstey. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Anstey solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
I had an offer accepted on a house in Anstey on 14/12/2022, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Solicitor instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Are Skipton entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
