My financial adviser requires my Harlow lawyer’ panel reference for the Santander conveyancing panel. What is the best way to obtain this. I have called my local Harlow branch but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Harlow conveyancing practitioner . Most Harlow conveyancing firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
Completed the sale of my flat in Harlow last September yet the purchaser is texting me to moan that their lawyer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
After completion of your sale your lawyer is obliged to forward the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks specific conveyancing in Harlow.

When it comes to lenders such as Co-operative, do Harlow conveyancers face a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Harlow on 3/6/2021, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to TSB and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Are TSB entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
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 TSB to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the TSB conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Our offer on a property in Harlow has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Harlow. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Co-operative started?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Harlow conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Co-operative approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Co-operative and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to proceed with searches.
I'm buying a new build house in Harlow with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it will adversely affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
My parents are having problems in finding their Harlow property on the HMLR site. They have a vague recollection fifty years ago when they acquired the property there were complications concerning the post code not being recognised in some systems.
Nearly all residences in Harlow should show up. Have you tried a search to just the postcode. Ordinarily it will disclose all the residences within the postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will show up with a title number. Where they bought 48 years ago it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The property might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title deeds which may be with your parent’s mortgage company.
