I am progressing with the sale of my apartment in Camborne and the estate agent has just text me to say that the purchasers are switching property lawyer. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only deal with property lawyers on their approved list. On what basis would a leading lender only deal with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose for their conveyancing in Camborne ?
UK lenders have always had an approved set of law firms they are content to work with, but in the last few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for more than 15 years.
Banks blame a rise in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any sway in the decision.
In the event thatI was to buy a straightforward housein Camborne mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Camborne?
The only saving you would achieve is the costs for searches. The solicitor still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with your vendors conveyancer, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it will not be a lot.

Is it the case that all Camborne solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the CLC.
Intending to buy a house in Camborne. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Camborne property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.
