My IFA has requested my Totnes law firm’s panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have called my local Totnes office but they have not responded to me.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Totnes property lawyer . Most Totnes conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Totnes conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel?
Totnes conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Yorkshire BS directly.
My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Totnes. I I would like to check whether they are on the Accord Mortgages Ltd approved list of lawyers. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
You should phone your lawyer and ask them if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you can call Accord Mortgages Ltd who may be able to confirm.
How does conveyancing in Totnes differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Totnes approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Totnes tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Totnes or who has acted in the same development.
