I plan on buying a flat in Hurworth. My Conveyancer has never been on on the lender conveyancing panel. Am I still permitted to use my Hurworth conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender approved list?
Your options include
- Complete the deal with your chosen Hurworth conveyancing practitioner but your lender will no doubt use a property lawyer from their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional charges and potential frustration.
- Appoint a new conveyancing practitioner to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your lawyer to attempt to join the lender panel
I do hope you can assist me. My Hurworth conveyancer is advising me that he has toapply for Hurworth conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsconveyancing panel. Is my conveyancer right?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Hurworth conveyancing searches.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Hurworth. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

New build sellers have put forward a property lawyer and I've received a quote from them. They are nearly £300 cheaper than my family Hurworth property lawyer. What's the catch?
Builders often have lists of conveyancers who are quick and who know the builder's paperwork and solicitor. As many developers offer an incentive to select their approved conveyancer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder will not put forward a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the transaction stall when they want exchange within a tight deadline. The argument for not agreeing to use the suggested solicitor is that they may prove hesitant to 'push' your interests for fear of upsetting the developer. If you worry that this may be the situation you should keep with your high street Hurworth property lawyer.
