Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Verwood

My husband and I are hoping to purchase a 1 bedroom flat in Verwood with a mortgage. We have a Verwood lawyer, but the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have little option but to instruct one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or keep our Verwood conveyancing practitioner and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. This feels very unfair; are we not able to require that the lender use our Verwood lawyer ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer 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. A further alternative is for your Verwood conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

As the owner of a leasehold property you are frequently in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to every day issues like the cleanliness of the common parts. Enquire of other tenants if they are happy with their management. Finally, be sure you discover the dates that you are obliged pay the maintenance charge to the managing agents and specifically what it includes. On the whole the outlay for major works tend not to be wrapped into the maintenance charges, although there some managing agents in Verwood ask leasehold owners to pay into a reserve fund and this is used to offset against larger repairs or maintenance.
