I am hoping to receive a mortgage with Halifax. I hope to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Homerton. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Halifax approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We are due to complete buying a property in Homerton but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the owner of three thousand pounds taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however RBS will not permit this. Why were they approached?
Your lawyer that is on a RBS conveyancing panel is required to advise RBS of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to report the reduction to RBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, RBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Homerton.
My fiance and I decided to purchase a 3 bedroom apartment in Homerton with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society.We would like to retain our Homerton conveyancing solicitor but Coventry Building Society advised that his firm is not on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Coventry Building Society panel firm or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Coventry Building Society use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers must be on the Coventry Building Society approved list. Until recently, most banks 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Coventry Building Society

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Homerton. I have a mortgage offer with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
