I am acquiring residence in Millwall. My property lawyer is not listed on the lender approved list. Is it possible for me to use my Millwall conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company panel?

They will carry out all the essential legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with.

However, if the conveyancing practitioner selected is not a member of the bank approved list supplemental costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so provided your conveyancer has not historically applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

I have miscalculated my finances and am a couple of grand short a 10% deposit on my house purchase in Millwall , but I am keen exchange. Do I have options?
One option is to try and agree a lesser deposit. Most property owners will accept a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last minute
