Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Morpeth

My fiance and I are purchasing a newbuild flat in Morpeth with a homeloan from Coventry Building Society.We have a Morpeth conveyancing lawyer but Coventry Building Society advised that his firm is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Coventry Building Society panel firm or keep our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the Coventry Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Coventry Building Society

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Morpeth what would it be?

Do not opt for the cheapest Morpeth conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

Are all Morpeth Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing list of approved firms?

It is true that some banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their panels.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Morpeth conveyancing solicitors were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Aldermore?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Aldermore conducted the valuation? Have you informed Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
