My solicitor has uncovered a a problem with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Mirfield. The other side have suggested defective title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer says that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is willing to move forward with this solution.

Even though you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the lender are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

Should I be wary about third parties that I am dealing with are suggesting an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Mirfield conveyancing company?
As with many service providers, often input from relatives can be very helpful. But there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all put forward lawyers to select. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of mortgage providers operate an approved list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your home move.
