Lenders in Kingstanding

Issues to consider when your lawyer is not on your Lender's panel

Panels of solicitors are maintained by mortgage lenders in order to undertake legal work on mortgaged properties. Lenders have also reduced the size of their panels, setting more restrictive criteria for membership. To proceed where your Kingstanding lawyer is not on a mortgage lender' s panel, you have the following options:

  • Try to obtain a mortgage from another lender who will instruct your Conveyancing solicitor.
  • Instruct another firm of Conveyancing solicitors who are on your lender's panel to handle your Conveyancing.
  • Continue with your present Conveyancing solicitor, but accept that a separate firm will also act for the lender, and that you will have to pay their costs in addition.

It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage.

Trees in Kingstanding

The impact of Tree Preservation Orders

In cases where houses have been built on land subject to an existing tree preservation order (TPO), it will be necessary to obtain a copy of this TPO from the council to check the plan.

Anyone proposing to cut down a tree in Kingstanding (under the exemption that is dying, dead or dangerous) is advised to give the council five days notice before carrying out the work, except in an emergency.

Conditions placed on Kingstanding developers requiring them to plant trees during construction do not necessarily imply a TPO is in place. By obtaining copies of any TPOs impacting your property before you go on the market, you will improve your chances of a faster transaction when you do find a buyer.
