I am hoping to receive a offer of a mortgage from Adam & Company International. I would like to use a Licensed Conveyancer. Does the Adam & Company International Conveyancing panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers
Adam & Company International’s conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We are due to exchange on the purchase a house but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have agreed compensation from the seller of £3k approx by way of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but my mortgage company Adam & Company International will not agree to this. Why was Adam & Company International even consulted?
Your lawyer being on the Adam & Company International conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Adam & Company International of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyers to disclose the reduction to Adam & Company International then they would have to discontinue acting for you and Adam & Company International.
Whilst your website is a good idea there are many lawyers listed near London on the Adam & Company International conveyancing panel. It would be a lot more helpful if you could recommend a specific firm on the Adam & Company International approved panel?
We are not in the business of recommending one firm above another as the right firm for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with local knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
I was scheduled to move into my first house two days ago. My lawyer’s firm is on the Adam & Company International conveyancing panel but has changed address in the past couple of months and had not advised Adam & Company International of their new address. Adam & Company International is now refusing to release my funds until such time as their systems are up to date with the correct details.
This is as unusual as it is unlucky. The majority of lender Terms of Conveyancing Panel Appointment specifically oblige the solicitor to inform the lender of an address change. Your solicitor needs to treat this with the utmost urgency. Do speak with or register your concern with the senior partner (assuming he or she is not your direct lawyer). Most lenders would be reasonable in this situation and expedite the resolution of this issue. It may be prudent to enlist the help of your local Adam & Company International branch or your mortgage broker to see if they can assist.
Can you point me to a directory of Adam & Company International panel conveyancers on the CML Handbook Website?
No. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few lenders make their panel listings available online.
