We are looking to buy a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Windsor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Skipton . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Windsor.
My husband and I intend to purchase a newly converted apartment in Windsor with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.We use our Windsor conveyancing practitioner but Norwich and Peterborough Building Society informed us he's not on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel lawyer or retain our local solicitor and pay for a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Norwich and Peterborough Building Society use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that solicitors will be on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society
I am aiming to move property in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Windsor. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across your site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your selling agent however this can only occur once the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Windsor or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Windsor.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Windsor conveyancing practitioners are instructed. How long does it take for Yorkshire BS to forward the offer to the conveyancer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Yorkshire BS done the valuation? Have you advised Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nottingham. Is it usual for Nottingham to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Windsor is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nottingham have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nottingham to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My partner and I expecting to exchange on the purchase a house in Windsor but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have agreed compensation from the owner of four thousand pounds in the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however my mortgage company will not agree to this. Should they have been notified?
Any conveyancing practitioner that is on the bank conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise the mortgage company of any amendments to the purchase amount. If you did not allow your solicitor to disclose the price change to your mortgage company then they would need to discontinue representing you and the lender.
