Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Turvey

I am nearing exchange of contracts for my house in Turvey and the estate agent has just e-mailed to warn that the purchasers are swapping property lawyer. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only deal with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a leading mortgage company only work with specific lawyers rather the firm that they want to select for their conveyancing in Turvey ?

Lenders have always had panels of law firms that can act for them, but in the last few years big names such as Yorkshire Building Society, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for more than 15 years.

Lenders justify this action to a rise in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any impact on this.

We are planning to acquire a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Turvey who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

The Turvey conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my house acquisition in Turvey have without warning closed. I chose them because I had to have a lawyer on the Lloyds conveyancing panel and my preferred Turvey lawyer was not. I paid them funds on account. What are my options?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.

My offer was accepted on a property in Turvey on 3/5/2024, valuation was booked 4 days after, all came back fine. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Are Coventry BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
