Precise Mortgages has instructed me to represent them alone on a residential conveyancing matter , using the CML Lender’s Handbook. The borrower has his own solicitor (not on the Precise Mortgages conveyancing panel) How does this operate and are there different requirements from Precise Mortgages in this case?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders, together with Precise Mortgages and other members developed a standard set of instructions where a solicitor is acting for a lender such as Precise Mortgages alone in a residential conveyancing transaction. These obligations are contained at Part Three of the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook and are to be read in conjunction with Parts 1 & 2. The CML have published an example requirements letter to the borrower’s lawyer for use by the lender's conveyancer, and sets out to the borrower's conveyancer, the documentary and information requirements of the lender's panel solicitor.
