I can't travel far from Upminster Bridge. I would like to know the understand why all Upminster Bridge solicitors aren't included on all lender panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for mortgage companies to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or lawyer’s viewpoint, the flip side is that lending institutions are becoming ever more anxious and consider it imperative to shield themselves against mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern lenders have consolidated their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

My fiance and I are buying a purpose built flat in Upminster Bridge with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd.We would like to retain our Upminster Bridge conveyancing lawyer but Accord Mortgages Ltd informed us her practice is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The home loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the Accord Mortgages Ltd approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Accord Mortgages Ltd

I am helping my mother sell her flat in Upminster Bridge. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to see to?
Following the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s was left as a required element of selling a house. An EPC must be to hand before the property is marketed. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Upminster Bridge conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established local assessors
I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Upminster Bridge bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Upminster Bridge conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Provided that the lawyer is on the bank approved list, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
How does conveyancing in Upminster Bridge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Upminster Bridge contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Upminster Bridge tend to purchase the site, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Upminster Bridge or who has acted in the same development.
