Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wapping

My fiance and I are planning to purchase a property in Wapping and are in fact using a Wapping conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Chelsea Building Society have this morning contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Wapping solicitor is not on their conveyancing panel. What do we do from here?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is standard for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Wapping solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

We are selling our house in Wapping. Does my conveyancing practitioner have to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

Is there a list of Aldermore panel solicitors in Wapping on the Building Society Association’s Website?

No. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lenders make their panel listings viewable online. Where you are looking for a Wapping solicitor on the Aldermore please make the most of our tool.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Wapping. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Wapping. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £150. A few days later, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Co-operative panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Wapping. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and TSB. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wapping and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.

On the look out for a conveyancing solicitor in Wapping. I thought I had one sorted but he's not on the panel for Aldermore. It would appear that these days most mortgage companies only allow lawyers on their panel. Extremely annoying limiting the choice for the paying public. Can you recommend a cheap Wapping conveyancing practitioner that can assist us as well as represent Aldermore?

LenderPanel.com is restricted to being a directory service for solicitors who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Aldermore in certain locations for example Wapping . We dont recommend any particular conveyancer.
