Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Barton Le Clay. Please spell out why all Barton Le Clay solicitors are not on all lender panels?
Lenders normally impose restrictions on either the type or volume of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers. Frequent examples of such restriction(s) being that a practice needs to have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the structure of firm, some have made a decision to restrict the size of their panel they permit to represent them. It is worth noting that banks have no responsibility for the accuracy of conveyancing supplied by any Barton Le Clay property lawyer on their panel. Property fraud was the key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels from 2008 even though there are conflicting thoughts concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from HM Land Registry exposes that thousands of law firms only conduct one or two conveyances a year. Those vindicating conveyancing panel pruning ask why conveyancing firms should have claim to remain on a lender panel when clearly property law is not their speciality?
My conveyancer has uncovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Barton Le Clay. The other side have suggested title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our property lawyer has advised that he must be satisfied that the bank is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
Even though you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the bank are the client. The appropriate lender specifications have to be complied with.

- Find a new lawyer to to deal with the conveyancing, remembering to check they are Chelsea Building Society approved.
