Our lawyer has identified a a problem with the lease for the flat we are buying in Hanslope. The seller’s lawyers have suggested title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer says that he must ensure that the bank is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.
we are a couple who decided to purchase a newbuild flat in Hanslope with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We would like to retain our Hanslope conveyancing practitioner but The Royal Bank of Scotland advised that his firm is not on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel firm or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland
