Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rainford

I am acquiring a flat in Rainford. My property lawyer has never been on on the bank approved panel. Am I still permitted to continue with my Rainford conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?

You must instruct a conveyancer to deal with the formalities when you take out a mortgage to purchase your property. They will conduct all the relevant legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in place. You could select a Rainford conveyancing practitioner of your choice. However, where the conveyancer appointed is not on the bank solicitor panel additional fees will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Conveyancing panel applications may be submitted, so if your solicitor has not previously sought membership they can do so.

It is a dozen years since I purchased my property in Rainford. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down the deeds. Is this a major issue?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with your lender or they may stored with the solicitor who oversaw your purchase.
