It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Leominster. However these days you will not be able to complete any conveyancing transaction without first supplying evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a utility bill. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as evidence of ID it needs to be both the paper section and photo card part, one is not sufficient in the absence of the other.

Proof of the source of funds is necessary in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations.

I have been told by my lawyer that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Leominster?

The appropriate level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

Planning on purchasing a house in Leominster. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Leominster solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a property in Leominster has been agreed to, what happens next?

Your estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Clydesdale or your financial adviser and complete any relevant documentation. Clydesdale will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to schedule an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight to get a mortgage offer. Clydesdale will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Leominster.

My fiance and I have recently had an offer accepted on a flat and had an appointment on Tuesday with HSBC for the mortgage. They warned us that when it comes to choosing a solicitor that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancers then we will have to pay out an extra fee of about two hundred pounds. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to select a property lawyer to act on their behalf as well as the one we choose to act for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have asked HSBC to provide me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved conveyancers 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?

Ask HSBC what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Then ask the lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for HSBC previously. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC. Alternatively please make use of our search facility and we may be able to find you a conveyancer in Leominster on the panel for HSBC.
