Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Piccadilly

I can't travel far from Piccadilly. Is there a reason why all Piccadilly conveyancing practitioners are not on all lender panels?

Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies removing less reputable firms from their official list of approved conveyancing practitioners .

We are planning to move house in January. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Piccadilly. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across this website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the selling agent however this should only take place after the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be handed over.

I currently have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Piccadilly. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Coventry BS?

Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel firm.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Piccadilly. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Piccadilly property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
