Common questions asked concerning the Tipton Coseley Building Society Conveyancing Panel from members of the public

My IFA has says he needs my lawyer’ panel reference for the Tipton Coseley Building Society conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have contacted my local Tipton Coseley Building Society office but they have not responded to me.
Have you tried speaking to your lawyer about this?. A law firm is likely to keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable their conveyancing panel details for Tipton Coseley Building Society.
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 Tipton Coseley Building Society will not agree to this. Why was Tipton Coseley Building Society even consulted?
Your lawyer being on the Tipton Coseley Building Society conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Tipton Coseley Building Society of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyers to disclose the reduction to Tipton Coseley Building Society then they would have to discontinue acting for you and Tipton Coseley Building Society.
How up to date is your database of lawyers on the Tipton Coseley Building Society conveyancing panel? Do Tipton Coseley Building Society send you an updated list?
The firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Tipton Coseley Building Society conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Tipton Coseley Building Society directly.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Tipton Coseley Building Society Conveyancing panel prior to the completion date?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have ti instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by the regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
Can you point me to a directory of Tipton Coseley Building Society panel conveyancers on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s 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.
