Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Malpas

My wife and I are looking to buy a property in Malpas and are in fact using a Malpas conveyancing practice.

Coventry Building Society have this afternoon contacted us to advise us that there is now an issue as our Malpas solicitor is not on their conveyancing panel. Please explain?

If you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Malpas lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.

Our lawyer has identified a defect with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Malpas. The other side have offered title insurance as a solution.

Even though you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the lender are the client. The appropriate lender provisions have to be complied with.

We previously chose conveyancing lawyers based in Malpas on the Aldermore solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a separate charge for dealing with the Aldermore mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?
