Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yarm On Tees

I am not in a position to travel far from Yarm On Tees. Is there a reason why all Yarm On Tees conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all bank panels?

Even though it may seem unfair for lenders to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or solicitor’s point of view, the other side of the coin is that lending institutions are increasingly anxious and regard it crucial to shield themselves against mortgage fraud. As a consequence of this concern banks have restricted their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.

Due to move into my new home in Yarm On Tees next Friday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What does the insurance need to cover?

Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Yarm On Tees. My lender is The Mortgage Works

The Mortgage Works have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 21/6/2022, the requirements read as follows :

I currently have a mortgage with TSB for my property in Yarm On Tees. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform TSB?

Your original mortgage agreement with TSB will provide that you need their approval prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of TSB’s mortgage conditions. It may be that TSB will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact TSB directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a TSB conveyancing panel solicitor.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Yarm On Tees. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Santander. Is it usual for Santander to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Yarm On Tees is approved on their conveyancing panel? Santander 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 Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I see that you have a post code search directory identifying firms on the lender conveyancing panel. Do Yarm On Tees conveyancing firms pay you a commission if I retain them for my own conveyancing?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the lender conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Yarm On Tees.
