I have just been advised by my broker that my Barlestone the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. How can I be sure whether this is correct?
Your first step should be to call your Barlestone conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Barlestone conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
We're in Barlestone, First time buyers buying with a mortgage (lender is RBS , and our solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I am aiming to move property in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Barlestone. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the estate agent however this should only take place when the vendors solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. Subsequently you should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Barlestone or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Barlestone.
We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from Bank of Ireland as we intend to carry out improvements to our house in Barlestone. Are we obliged to select a nearby Barlestone solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Bank of Ireland do not ordinarily appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland panel.
I currently have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Barlestone. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?
Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel firm.
