I plan on purchasing a maisonette in Seaton. My property lawyer is not listed on the lender approved list. Am I still permitted to use my Seaton conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options include
- Proceed with your preferred Seaton conveyancer but your lender will no doubt instruct a lawyer on their approved panel. This will result in additional cost together with potential interruption.
- Appoint a fresh property lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Convince your property lawyer to seek to join the bank panel

If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Seaton you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the firms we recommend supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return.

The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Seaton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
