we are a couple who are purchasing a newbuild flat in Belsize Park with a loan from Skipton Building Society.We use our Belsize Park conveyancing solicitor but Skipton Building Society advised that he's not listed on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Skipton Building Society panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Skipton Building Society approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society

How does conveyancing in Belsize Park differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Belsize Park approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Belsize Park tend to acquire 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.
