Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Basingstoke

My financial adviser has asked me for my Basingstoke lawyer’ panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have called my local Basingstoke office but they have not got back to me yet.

You are best placed to get this information from your Basingstoke conveyancing practitioner . They should have a central record lender panel numbers.

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Co-operative Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Basingstoke?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
