Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Clayhall. I would like to know the logic why all Clayhall property lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Banks point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This led to mortgage companies removing a number of firms from their books of approved conveyancing practitioners .
Please help. My Clayhall conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound toapply for Clayhall conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Santanderconveyancing panel. These Clayhall searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Clayhall conveyancing searches.

How does conveyancing in Clayhall differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Clayhall approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Clayhall tend to acquire the site, 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 Clayhall or who has acted in the same development.
