My husband and I are purchasing a 3 bedroom apartment in Edge Hill with a mortgage. We like our Edge Hill conveyancer, however the bank says he's not on their "panel". It seems we have no option but to instruct one of the mortgage company panel conveyancing practices or keep our Edge Hill lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We consider that this is unjust; are we not able to require that the lender use our Edge Hill lawyer ?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’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. A further alternative is for your Edge Hill conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Edge Hill. Almost all the appartments have already been disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Edge Hill?
You would be opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in refusing to carrying out Edge Hill conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that your conveyancer conducts them. Where speed and cost are primary concerns you should consider with your solicitor about the option of search insurance
