My home in Colliers Wood is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Will the property lawyer have to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently currently.
We previously selected conveyancers based in Colliers Wood on the RBS solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a further charge for the legal aspects of the RBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by RBS?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by RBS but by your Colliers Wood conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the RBS panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Colliers Wood conveyancing practitioner on the TSB panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your TSB mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Colliers Wood. My mortgage broker suggested a conveyancing practitioner. I paid an on account payment of £200. A few days later, the conveyancing practitioner called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
