Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Kempshott. Please explain the reason why all Kempshott conveyancing practitioners are not on all mortgage company panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in lenders pruning less reputable firms off their books of approved conveyancing practitioners .

Now that you have legally committed yourself to purchase you must appoint a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are facing a tight deadline in which to complete the transaction. Every auction property will have a corresponding legal pack. This should include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold premises the auction pack should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property. You need to pass this on to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete on the on the contractual date .
We had selected solicitors with offices in Kempshott on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. They are now charging me a supplemental fee for handling the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Kent Reliance?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancer can charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Kent Reliance but by your Kempshott property lawyer. Some firms on the Kent Reliance panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Kempshott. I have a mortgage offer with UBS. 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 UBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Kempshott differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Kempshott contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Kempshott usually purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Kempshott or who has acted in the same development.
