A property search bar on the internet; our Conveyancing Solicitors in Lancaster discuss lender panels, and why they are important.
When your Conveyancing Solicitors in Lancaster act on behalf of a property buyer, who is purchasing with the assistance of funds from a mortgage lender, your solicitor will not only represent you, but more often than not, they will represent your lender. Whilst in most cases, solicitors must be careful not to act for two parties in the same matter, in the case of property purchases, your Conveyancing Solicitors are allowed to act for the client and the lender. 
On that basis, mortgage lenders each have their own panel solicitors, which are a list of approved Conveyancing Solicitors who meet the lender’s requirements, and are approved to act on the lender’s behalf with the purchase of properties. The lender’s requirements are usually quite strict, and will include provisions to ensure that the Conveyancing Solicitors who act for them have certain insurance in place, a specific set of knowledge and skills, and usually a minimum number of directors or partners. 
Lender panel solicitors are Conveyancing Solicitors approved by mortgage lenders to carry out the legal work associated with mortgage transactions. These solicitors are part of a “panel” – essentially a list of firms of conveyancing solicitors who have met the lender’s strict criteria and are therefore trusted to act on behalf of the lender in property transactions. 
When you take out a mortgage, the lender has a significant interest in the property, just like you. They want to ensure that everything is in order legally before they agree to lend you the money. This is where lender panel solicitors come in. They perform essential tasks such as checking the property’s title, conducting searches, and ensuring there are no legal issues that could affect the lender’s security.

Why Are Lender Panel Solicitors Important? 

Protection for the Lender: 

These Conveyancing solicitors ensure that the lender’s interests are protected in the transaction, alongside protecting the interests of the buyers. They check for any legal issues that could impact the property’s value or the lender’s security. Without this due diligence, the lender could be exposed to significant risks. 

Efficiency and Expertise: 

Lender panel solicitors, such as MG Legal, have specific expertise in mortgage transactions. They understand the lender’s requirements and processes, which can lead to a smoother and quicker transaction. Their experience and knowledge can be invaluable, especially if there are complex legal issues to resolve. 

Peace of Mind for You: 

While the lender panel solicitor primarily protects the lender’s interests, their thorough checks also benefit you as the buyer. By identifying any legal problems early in the process, they can help avoid delays, additional costs, or even a failed transaction. 

Compliance and Legal Standards: 

Lender panel solicitors must adhere to high standards of compliance and legal practice. This ensures that the legal work related to your mortgage is carried out professionally and diligently.

How Do They Impact Your Property Transaction? 

If your chosen Conveyancing solicitor is not on your mortgage lender’s panel, it will complicate your transaction. You will have to instruct a second solicitor who is on the panel, leading to additional costs and increases in timescales. Therefore, it’s often best to confirm that your solicitor is on the lender’s panel before you proceed. 

How can MG Legal help? 

Lender panel solicitors play a critical role in the property buying and selling process. They ensure that the lender’s interests are protected, and that the transaction meets all legal requirements, whilst acting for the buyer and their best interests. This, in turn, provides peace of mind for you as the borrower/buyer. When starting your property transaction, consider discussing with your mortgage advisor or lender about their panel solicitors to ensure a smooth and efficient process. Remember, the right legal advice can make all the difference in your property journey.
