Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Buntingford

It has come to my attention via my financial adviser that my Buntingford lawyer is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. What can I do to check?

The first thing you need to do is to call your Buntingford lawyer directly. You lawyer should advise you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Buntingford? What am I being asked for?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identification documents of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. Where you are unwilling to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to act for you.

we are a couple who are purchasing a newbuild apartment in Buntingford with a homeloan from TSB.We have a Buntingford conveyancing lawyer but TSB advised that her practice is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a TSB panel firm or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that TSB use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors will be on the TSB conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for TSB

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of hinderance in Buntingford house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Buntingford.

Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
