Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leigh On Sea

I am acquiring a flat in Leigh On Sea. My lawyer is not on the bank solicitor panel. Can I still retain my Leigh On Sea conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender panel?

You will need to instruct a solicitor to deal with the formalities when you take out a loan to purchase your property. The property lawyer will carry out all the appropriate investigations on the property, ensuring that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place. One can appoint a Leigh On Sea property lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the solicitor selected is not a member of the bank solicitor panel additional costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not previously applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

We are due to complete buying a property in Leigh On Sea but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the owner in the sum of three thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Aldermore are not allowing this. Why were they approached?

The conveyancing practitioner that is on a Aldermore conveyancing panel is required to inform Aldermore of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the price change to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Leigh On Sea.

A selection of banks and building societies now use CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

We previously chose conveyancing lawyers located in Leigh On Sea on the Virgin Money solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional fee for dealing with the Virgin Money mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Virgin Money?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Virgin Money but by your Leigh On Sea conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Virgin Money panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Leigh On Sea conveyancing solicitors are chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Nationwide?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide done the survey? Have you informed Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
