Me and my fiance are hoping to acquire a 1 bedroom apartment in Killamarsh with a mortgage. We have a Killamarsh lawyer, but the lender advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or continue with our Killamarsh property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Killamarsh conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Killamarsh? Why is this being asked of me?
Killamarsh conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers accross the UK have an obligation under money laundering regulations to check the identity of any client in order to ensure that clients are who they say they are.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Killamarsh registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not always top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
