Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Petts Wood

I am progressing with the sale of my house in Petts Wood and the EA has just called to advise that the purchasers are changing their property lawyer. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only deal with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a leading mortgage company only deal with specific solicitors rather the firm that they want to select to handle their conveyancing in Petts Wood ?

Mortgage companies have always had an approved set of law firms that can act for them, but in the last few years big names such as Nationwide, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for many years.

Lenders point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The buyers are not going to have any impact on this.

Can you help? My Petts Wood conveyancer is advising me that he has toorder Petts Wood conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer correct?

You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Petts Wood conveyancing searches.

We are looking to buy a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Petts Wood who is on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local firm?

It is part of a development site and my solicitor told me that it can take 12 months to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted HMLR directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Do I need to be concerned?

It is your property lawyer that you must turn to here in order to satisfy any questions which have been raised as part of the registration process for your Petts Wood property.
