My husband and I are hoping to purchase a 3 bedroom apartment in Grahame Park with a mortgage. We like our Grahame Park conveyancer, but the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little option but to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or keep our Grahame Park conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is inequitable; can we not demand that the bank use our Grahame Park property lawyer ?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you 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. Another option that might be available is for your Grahame Park conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

When can the exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Grahame Park and am I required to be at the lawyers office?
If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Grahame Park you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Grahame Park)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Grahame Park. The conventional set of information given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect answer. A buyer’s conveyancers may also order an enviro report. This will reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be carried out.
