Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stamford

Me and my fiance are buying a 1 bedroom flat in Stamford with a mortgage. We like our Stamford lawyer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no option but to instruct one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or retain our Stamford conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This feels very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Stamford conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

The Stamford conveyancing firm handling our Stamford conveyancing has discovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property.

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
