At long last a loan agreement from Nationwide for the remortgage of my single bedroom maisonette is expected imminently. Can you put forward a low cost conveyancing solicitor in Lea Bridge?
This site is not designed to help those in their quest for the lowest fares for conveyancing in Lea Bridge. Our intention is to offer affordable conveyancing but we do not work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint companies offering the bait of ninety nine pound conveyancing in Lea Bridge. The optimum outcome, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst it will result in you paying a lot in additional fees and still not end up with the service expected.
My lawyer has identified a defect with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Lea Bridge. The seller’s lawyers have offered defective title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our property lawyer has advised that he must ensure that the lender is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the lender are the client. Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the bank can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your solicitor will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
How up to date is your search tool for Lea Bridge conveyancing solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Do Lloyds send you an updated list?
Lea Bridge conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Lloyds directly.
What happens if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Principality Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Lea Bridge?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
