My financial adviser has asked me for my Knighton law firm’s panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. What is the best way to discover this. I have contacted my local Knighton office but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Knighton solicitor . Most Knighton law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
We note that you have a search directory listing firms on the Santander conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a referral fee if I appoint them for our conveyancing in Knighton?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Santander conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Knighton.
I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would prefer to appoint a high street conveyancing solicitor in Knighton?
Do check but the chances are that give you one of their panel solicitors where you accept the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the mortgage company and determine if they make available a monetary alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Knighton.
I am purchasing a detached bungalow in Knighton. Our aim is to convert the garage to an office at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to determine if these alterations are allowed?
Your solicitor should check the registered title as conveyancing in Knighton can on occasion identify restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain alterations or need the permission of another owner. Certain works require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I am expecting a DIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Knighton solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Knighton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
I can not work out if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Knighton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Knighton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
As long as the solicitor is on the bank approved list, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
The deeds to our property can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Knighton 10 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware exactly where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you can purchase or sell your house without any difficulty. If duplicates are not available, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your property.
