We are hoping to buy a 2 bedroom apartment in Uckfield with a mortgage. We have a Uckfield conveyancer, however the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to appoint one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or continue with our Uckfield lawyer 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 bank’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. Another option that might be available is for your Uckfield conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
The sellers of the house we are looking to purchase hired a conveyancing practitioner in Uckfield who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a down payment 6,000. Are such arrangements recommended for Uckfield conveyancing transactions?
Lock out agreements are agreements between a home owner and prospective buyer granting the buyer the sole right to the sale of the premises for a certain period of time. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract stating that you will have a contract at a later date which is the contract for the actual sale. It is generally used for buyer protection though in many situations, the proprietor may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are numerous positives and negatives to having them but you need to check with your solicitor but note that it may end up costing you more in conveyancing fees. For these reasons these agreements are not popular when it comes to conveyancing in Uckfield.
