is it true that all Rothley solicitor practices on the Santander conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Santander conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Rothley property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Santander conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Santander will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Santander will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Rothley surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Our offer on a property in Rothley has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Rothley. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Rothley conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to press on with searches.
