I am not well enough to travel far from Uxbridge. Is there a reason why all Uxbridge lawyers aren't included on all bank panels?
A decade ago most banks had an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic review into fraud which concluded: know the solicitors on your panel. Accordingly, lenders have since soughtmore information from law firms about their operations and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many firms have found themselves removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the minimum amount of transactions the lenders insisted on.
The sellers of the home we are looking to purchase hired a conveyancing solicitor in Uxbridge who has recommended a lock out agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of main drawbacks with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular by Uxbridge conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser should not expect to win injunctive relief to prohibit the seller disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in restricted scenarios, the extra payment of damages.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Uxbridge is more expensive?
The conveyancing costs for a leasehold premises in Uxbridge is frequently higher than on a freehold property. This is due to the supplemental investigations required in corresponding with the landlord and management company to collate the information about whether the rent and maintenance charges have been paid and whether there are any major works due in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.
Can you point me to a directory of Nationwide panel conveyancers in Uxbridge on the Building Society Association’s Website?
No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings open the public on the web. If you are looking for a Uxbridge property lawyer on the Nationwide please make the most of our facility.
is it true that all Uxbridge solicitor practices on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be regulated by the CLC.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Lloyds. Is it usual for Lloyds to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Uxbridge is approved on their conveyancing panel? Lloyds have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have been recommended by three or four local selling agents in Uxbridge to select a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site over another?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
