Myself and my husband have just had an offer accepted on a property and had meeting on Wednesday with HSBC for the mortgage. They have informed me that when it comes to appointing a conveyancing practitioner that if they are not on their approved panel of conveyancing practitioners then we will be subject to an an additional fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to instruct a solicitor to act for them in addition to the one we select for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have asked HSBC to supply me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is their an easier way of going about this?
Ask HSBC what their criteria for panel membership is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on mortgages for HSBC in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC. Alternatively please use our search tool and we may be able to locate a lawyer in Werrington on the panel for HSBC.
