My fiance and I are hoping to purchase a house in Beacontree Heath and are in fact using a Beacontree Heath conveyancing firm. Within the last couple of days our solicitor has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Nationwide Building Society have this morning contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Beacontree Heath lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?
Where you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. 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 mortgage company 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 don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Beacontree Heath lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
