Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yorkshire Dales

I am acquiring a newly built duplex in Yorkshire Dales and my lawyer is informing me that she has to the bank to disclose incentives from the builder. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange and I don't want to delay the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

We decided to purchase a newly converted flat in Yorkshire Dales with a residential mortgage from Chelsea Building Society.We would like to retain our Yorkshire Dales conveyancing lawyer but Chelsea Building Society informed us she’s not on their "panel". It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Chelsea Building Society panel firm or retain our high street solicitor and pay for a Chelsea Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Chelsea Building Society approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society
