Me and my partner are purchasing property in Kentish Town. My lawyer is not listed on the lender approved list. Is it possible for me to use my Kentish Town conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel?
One must appoint a conveyancing practitioner to complete the formalities if you take out a loan to buy your home. They will carry out all the essential due diligence on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. You may select a Kentish Town conveyancer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the lawyer selected is not a member of the mortgage company approved list supplemental charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not historically applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.
Some advice if I may. My Kentish Town conveyancer is informing me me that he has toorder Kentish Town conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Nat Westsolicitor panel. These Kentish Town searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner 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 specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Kentish Town conveyancing searches.

Me and my partner have just had an offer accepted on a apartment and had an appointment on Wednesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They have informed us that when it comes to selecting a solicitor that unless they are on their approved list of property lawyers then we will incur an additional fee of about two hundred pounds. This is because they would then have to select a solicitor to act on their behalf as well as the one we appoint on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their fees. I have asked Leeds Building Society to supply me with a list so I can obtain quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told that I need to check with each individual lawyer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
You should ask Leeds Building Society what their criteria for joining their panel is for a solicitor.Thereafter ask the lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Leeds Building Society in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Leeds Building Society. Another option is to utilise our search facility and we should be able to identify a solicitor in Kentish Town on the panel for Leeds Building Society.
