My wife and I are purchasing a leasehold flat in Ross On Wye. My Conveyancer is not on the bank conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to use my Ross On Wye conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank approved list?
You must have a property lawyer to deal with the legal work required if you require a mortgage to buy your property. They will carry out all the essential investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One may appoint a Ross On Wye lawyer of your choosing. However, if the conveyancing practitioner selected is not on the mortgage company solicitor panel additional fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not historically sought membership they should take the chance to apply.
My husband and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Ross On Wye and my parents have sent the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your solicitor is legally required to clarify with lender to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Ross On Wye?
