Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Peak District

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Peak District is not listed on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?

That would more than likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Peak District conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

My home in Peak District is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for stalling in Peak District conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Peak District.
