Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Putney

I am buying a ground floor flat in Putney. My property lawyer has never been on on the mortgage company approved panel. Can I still appoint my Putney conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel?

You will need to use a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the formalities when you need a mortgage to buy your property. The lawyer will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. One may select a Putney conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the property lawyer appointed is not a member of the bank solicitor panel supplemental costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Conveyancing panel applications may be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not historically applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Putney is approved on their conveyancing panel?
