My offer was accepted on an apartment in Haggerston on 6/9/2021, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Co-operative and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

TSB have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Haggerston has been agreed to, now what?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Haggerston is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Haggerston are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Haggerston you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Haggerston may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

How easy is it to change solicitor as I need to choose a firm on the Aldermore conveyancing list. I was using a family conveyancing solicitor in Haggerston round the corner but she is not accepted by Aldermore

We will our best to assist in finding you a conveyancing solicitor in Haggerston on the Aldermore panel. Please note that the property lawyers that we list do not pay us commission if you instruct them and are registered with the SRA who regulate all conveyancing solicitors in Haggerston.

My husband and I are acquiring a garden flat in Haggerston. When we first instructed conveyancer, they told us that they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. Our mortgage broker called yesterday to say that they don't seem to be on the Aldermore approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we simply choose a different conveyancing practitioner that is on their approved list or do we cover the costs for separate representation, with Aldermore selecting their own preferred solicitor.

Where you are buying a property requiring a mortgage it is conventional for the purchaser’s solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the conveyancing practitioner has to satisfy. Some banks now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should contact Aldermore and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Aldermore's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Haggerston lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
