I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Isleworth off the council. I have a mortgage offer with UBS. Conveyancing is new to me. 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 UBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel.

We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the selling agent told us that the owners will only proceed if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Isleworth
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Isleworth conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.
My 20yr old son is just in the process of moving house, he had his mortgage in principle. One the offer was accepted on apartment we telephoned the bank to move forward with his. I was disappointed to hear that banks do not accept all conveyancing practitioner, they need to be on their approved list, is this legal?
Mortgage Companies normally imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that banks have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Isleworth lawyer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Probably not.
