Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hinckley

Our lawyer has identified a defect with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Hinckley. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor has advised that he must ensure that the bank is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the lender?

Even though you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions 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 lender are the client. The appropriate lender conditions have to be complied with.

Do banks and building societies provide you with an approved list of Hinckley conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel?

I am considering applying for a TSB mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Hinckley with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for TSB ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the TSB conveyancing panel, but TSB would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

I am aiming to move home in October. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Hinckley. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from your selling agent but this should only occur when the sellers solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. You can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Hinckley or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Hinckley.

My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the estate agent to execute conveyancing in Hinckley. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of service. Can you help me find new solicitors?

They would need to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has the loan offer been generated? If so you must make them aware of the replacement lawyer and have the offer are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid added costs and delays. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.

My work colleague mentioned that before choosing a conveyancing solicitors they need approved by your mortgage company.

Can HSBC need an approved lawyer to be used? Does a list of approved firms even exist so I can choose a conveyancing solicitor in Hinckley?

You need to instruct a solicitor that is on the HSBC panel. The simplest thing to do is telephone your preferred Hinckley conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the HSBC panel. If they are not on the panel you have a couple of alternatives available to you here:

  • Proceed with your preferred Hinckley conveyancer but HSBC will need to appoint a property lawyer from their approved list. This will result in additional cost together with potential frustration.
  • Get a new conveyancing practitioner to conduct the conveyancing, ensuring that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your solicitor to do everything within their powers to get accepted on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
