Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Elm Park

My fiance and I are planning to purchase a home in Elm Park and are in fact using a Elm Park conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Virgin Money have this evening contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Elm Park lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Is this a problem?

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 lender 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 are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Elm Park solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
