What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the TSB Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Wimborne?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
How can we tell if a Wimborne conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Wimborne obtaining recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.
My partner and I have organised the release of further monies on our home loan from Santander as we wish to carry out alterations to our house in Wimborne. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Wimborne solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Santander do not ordinarily instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander list.
I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Wimborne. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £225. A few days later, the solicitor contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Lloyds 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 Lloyds 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.
