Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kentish Town

Is the fact that my solicitor in Kentish Town is not on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel.

I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me.

I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but the mortgage company will not agree to this. Why were they notified?

Your solicitor being on the lender conveyancing panel is obliged to advise the bank of any variations to the purchase price. In the event that you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to your lender then they would have no choice but to discontinue representing you and the lender.
