Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Twickenham

We are planning to purchase a 3 bedroom apartment in East Twickenham with a mortgage. We like our East Twickenham lawyer, however the mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little choice but to select one of the mortgage company panel firms or retain our East Twickenham solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We regard this is inequitable; are we not able to insist that the lender use our East Twickenham lawyer ?

Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower 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. Another option that might be available is for your East Twickenham conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your estate agent but this should only be done when the sellers lawyers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over.

As your lender is Principality your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The CML Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Principality where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to East Twickenham.

What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, East Twickenham conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Santander and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in East Twickenham.

Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are the number one reason for delay in East Twickenham house deals. Is this right?

Local searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in East Twickenham.
