Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Deal

I plan on purchasing a maisonette in Deal. My property lawyer has never been on on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Can I still use my Deal conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?

You will need to have a solicitor to complete the formalities when you require a loan to purchase your home. They will carry out all the necessary due diligence on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. One may select a Deal conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. However, if the solicitor appointed is not a member of the bank conveyancing panel further charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously sought membership they should do so.

We were just about to sign contracts for a garden flat in Deal. We have hit a problem. The mortgage offer with Birmingham Midshires runs out on 17/9/2021 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 21/9/2021. Can one extend the mortgage expiry date?

The person best placed to deal with your question is your solicitors who is in a position to determine whether they better off negotiating with the mortgage company, vendor’s lawyers, property agents or conceivably all parties given what has gone on in your house move as of today.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Deal? Is this really necessary?

To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Deal conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing where you reside.

Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are required to check not just the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will lead to your lawyer ending their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers are duty bound to notify the relevant authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

How does conveyancing in Deal differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Deal contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Deal usually purchase 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 Deal or who has acted in the same development.

Am I better off to go with a Deal conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can conduct the conveyancing however they are based 200miles drive away.

The benefit of a high street Deal conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and in the main were content that must outweigh using an unknown Deal conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

My husband and I are planning to purchase a four bedroom housein Deal with a mortgage from a lender. We like our lawyer in Deal yet our mortgage company inform us now that she’s not on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose from the our bank panel solicitors or stay with our Deal conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Deal lawyer?

No, not really. The lender home loan issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Deal : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
