Can you help? My Lewisham conveyancer is assuring me that he has toorder Lewisham conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westconveyancing panel. Is my lawyer correct?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Lewisham conveyancing searches.
Will lawyers ask for an advanced payment for my conveyancing in Lewisham?

How does conveyancing in Lewisham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Lewisham come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in Lewisham tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Lewisham or who has acted in the same development.
