My Conveyancer in Mill Hill is not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to use my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Mill Hill lawyers but Accord Mortgages Ltd will need to use a conveyancer on their panel. This will result in additional overall conveyancing fees as well as cause delays.
- Find a new lawyer to act in the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel

How does conveyancing in Mill Hill differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Mill Hill come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Mill Hill typically purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Mill Hill or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Mill Hill in advance of instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks may not give a loan on a flying freehold property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Mill Hill. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Mill Hill especially if they are familiar with such properties in Mill Hill.
