I am acquiring a maisonette in Hartlepool. My Conveyancer is not on the lender conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to retain my Hartlepool conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the lender panel?
One must appoint a lawyer to deal with the legal work required when you take out a mortgage to buy your property. The conveyancer will carry out all the relevant legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in order. You may appoint a Hartlepool conveyancing practitioner of your choice. However, where the property lawyer selected is not a member of the lender approved list additional fees will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not in the past sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
Our son is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Hartlepool with a home loan from Coventry BS. His lawyer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Coventry BS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
