The Chorley & District Building Society Conveyancing Lender Panel Compliance Tool

Lexsure’s COMPLETIONmonitor is an online pre- and post-completion checklist for residential conveyancing lawyers. Supported by the Council of Mortgage Lenders and PI insurers such as AmTrust. COMPLETIONmonitor is a unique risk management tool.

This system optimises the way you can demonstrate to lender panels that you are, and can remain fully compliant with their requirements, with notifications given on The Chorley & District Building Society’s changes. Notwithstanding that utilising the tool is not a prerequisite for The Chorley & District Building Society , demonstrating you can stay up to date with The Chorley & District Building Society’s Handbook requirements is a helpful support to your application to their lender panel and, more importantly, safeguard your panel standing.

COMPLETIONmonitor generates real-time alerts, automatically produces SRA and CQS reports, and will increase your firm's efficiency. In addition it is user friendly, cost-effective and, for some firms, results in a PII saving.

FAQs : The The Chorley & District Building Society Solicitor Panel from members of the public

My financial adviser has says he needs my lawyer’ panel member for the The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel. What is the best way to discover this. I have contacted my local The Chorley & District Building Society office but they cant find it on their system.

I am purchasing a brand new apartment and my conveyancer is informing me that she has to disclose incentives from the developer as her firm is on the The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel. I am on a tight deadline to exchange and I dont want to delay deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on the The Chorley & District Building Society approved panel is to comply with the CML Handbook requirements (last updated for this lender on The Chorley & District Building Society). The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

The lawyers that just started acting on my house acquisition in Newcastle has suddenly closed. I chose them because I needed a solicitor on the The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel and my family lawyer was not. I paid them £200 on account. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help
The mortgage over my property is with The Chorley & District Building Society. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform The Chorley & District Building Society?
The Chorley & District Building Society must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of The Chorley & District Building Society’s mortgage conditions. It may be that The Chorley & District Building Society will permit you to let 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 The Chorley & District Building Society directly. You need not do this via a The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel firm.
Can I register a complaint to The Chorley & District Building Society about the lawyers being on the The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel?
Complaining to The Chorley & District Building Society about their conveyancing panel is unlikely to yield much of a response. All solicitors and conveyancer must have a complaints procedure. Usually one can find this information from the solicitor’s or conveyancer’s website or ask at their office. They must tell you about it if you ask.

The Legal Ombudsman will make sure that your complaint is addressed by the solicitor. It can also advise you how to complain.

If a licensed conveyancer does not have a complaints procedure or will not tell you about it, contact the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC), which will make sure that your complaint is properly dealt with by the conveyancer. Please see below for more information.
