I am acquiring a flat in Holt. My property lawyer is not on the lender conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my Holt conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender approved list?
You will need to instruct a lawyer to deal with the formalities when you require a loan to buy your property. The solicitor will conduct all the essential investigations on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. One may appoint a Holt lawyer of your choice. However, if the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the lender conveyancing panel further fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Conveyancing panel applications may be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not previously sought membership they should take the chance to apply.

As someone not used to the Holt conveyancing process what’s your top tip you can impart concerning the ownership transfer in Holt
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Holt or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and sometimes a mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Holt is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Sometimes a potential adversary will attempt to persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your solicitor is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your conveyancers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and maintenance charges should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date.
