You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions.

We are selling our house in Barton Le Clay. Does the conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

How does conveyancing in Barton Le Clay differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Barton Le Clay contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Barton Le Clay typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Barton Le Clay or who has acted in the same development.

If a Barton Le Clay property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors passes away, the name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds.

With the aim of making things smoother for the sale of the property you may arrange to have the deceased party erased from the title entries by applying to HM Land Registry with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
