We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer has advised that he must check that the lender is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the lender are the client. The appropriate lender specifications must be adhered to.
We are selling our home in Exminster. Will my property lawyer need to be required to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.

How does conveyancing in Exminster differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Exminster approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Exminster tend to acquire the site, 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 Exminster or who has acted in the same development.
