It has taken forever and a day but a loan agreement from HSBC for the remortgage of my 3 room apartment is expected any day now. Can you put forward a low cost conveyancing practitioner in Putney?
You are on the wrong site if you are in need of the cheapest conveyancing in Putney. Our goal is to offer value for money conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint organisations offering ninety nine pound conveyancing in Putney. In your best case scenario, in going for low cost conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst you will end up spending a lot in extras and still not end up with the service expected.
The Putney conveyancing firm handling our Putney conveyancing has discovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor informs me that he is duty bound to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s stance right?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions 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 you.
We are looking to buy a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Putney who is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for TSB . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Putney.
we are a couple who decided to purchase a 3 bedroom flat in Putney with a homeloan from Chelsea Building Society.We like our Putney conveyancing solicitor but Chelsea Building Society advised that his firm is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Chelsea Building Society panel lawyer or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Chelsea Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Chelsea Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Putney. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Putney?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Putney. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
We were going to get a AIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Putney solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Putney solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nationwide. Is it usual for Nationwide to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Putney is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nationwide have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
