My fiance and I are looking to acquire a property in Crosby and have appointed a Crosby conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our conveyancer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. Barclays Direct have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Crosby lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Please explain?
When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is standard for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Crosby solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

As far as conveyancing in Crosby is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
