Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Castleton

I am 4 weeks into the sale of my house in Castleton and the estate agent has just text me to say that the purchasers are switching property lawyer. I am told that this is due to the fact that the bank will only work with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a leading mortgage company only work with certain law firms rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Castleton ?

Lenders have always had panels of law firms that can act for them, but in recent years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for more than 15 years.

Mortgage companies point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some 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. The buyers are not going to have any impact on this.

How does conveyancing in Castleton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Castleton contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Castleton usually buy the land, 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 Castleton or who has acted in the same development.
