Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Moor Row

The Moor Row conveyancing firm handling our Moor Row conveyancing has discovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s stance correct?

Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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 both parties.

My property lawyer in Moor Row is not listed on the Nottingham Building Society Approved Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Nottingham Building Society approved list?

The limited options open to you here include:

  1. Carry on with your existing Moor Row lawyers but Nottingham Building Society will need to use a conveyancer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total legal fees and result in delays.
  2. Get an alternative lawyer to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are on the Nottingham Building Society panel

My solicitor has informed me that chancel insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Moor Row conveyancing?

The right level of chancel indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Barclays and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

When it comes to lenders such as Skipton, do Moor Row solicitors face a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

I had an offer accepted on a property in Moor Row on 9/5/2024, valuation was booked 2 days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
