We are selling our flat in Beaminster. Does my property lawyer have to be required to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nottingham 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 panel criteria fairly frequently in recent years.

How does conveyancing in Beaminster differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Beaminster contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Beaminster typically buy the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Beaminster or who has acted in the same development.
