I was told today by my broker that my Sully lawyer is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure that this is correct?
The first thing you need to do is to call your Sully lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Sully conveyancing practice that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
My wife and I are soon to complete on the purchase of a property in Sully but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Barclays will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
Any conveyancer being on a Barclays conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Barclays of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to disclose the price change to Barclays then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Barclays and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Sully.
