I can't travel far from Goodmayes. Can you please clarify why all Goodmayes property lawyers aren't automatically on all lender panels?
Banks normally restrict either the type or volume of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such criteria being that a organisation is required to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the nature of firm, some banks for example HSBC decided to restrict the size of their panel they permit to represent them. It is worth noting that building societies have no liability for the accuracy of service provided by any Goodmayes lawyer on their panel. Property fraud was the main trigger for the reduction of solicitor panels in the last decade notwithstanding that there are opposing opinions about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data via the Land Registry indicates that thousands of law firms only transact a couple of conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel culls question why conveyancing firms deserve the right to be on a conveyancing panel when clearly conveyancing is not their speciality?
I am considering applying for a Santander mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Goodmayes with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Santander ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Santander conveyancing panel, but Santander would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Goodmayes what would it be?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Goodmayes conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Goodmayes. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Goodmayes?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Goodmayes property lawyer on the Principality panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Principality mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Principality mortgage from the register. Principality, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Principality has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Principality has instructed the Land Registry to do so
