Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Babbacombe

My partner and I are hoping to acquire a flat in Babbacombe and have appointed a Babbacombe conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our property lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. TSB have this morning contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Babbacombe lawyer is not on their conveyancing panel. Please explain?

When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Babbacombe lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
