My wife and I are hoping to buy a property in Market Bosworth and have appointed a Market Bosworth conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our property lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. Coventry Building Society have this afternoon contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Market Bosworth lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?
If you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. 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 solicitor 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 lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Market Bosworth lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
The Market Bosworth conveyancing firm handling our Market Bosworth conveyancing has identified an inconsistency when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is in the legal papers for the property. My solicitor says that he must check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action appropriate?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
