LAWYERS UNITED

Conveyancers Assemble!!

Introduction

Our conveyancing service is facilitated by LMS who are the UK’s pre-eminent provider of conveyancing panel management services with 25 years of unrivalled experience.

New conveyancers can apply to join our panel here.

Existing LMS members can view our criteria and apply to join our panel by logging into the LMS Conveyancer Zone.

Joint Representative Conveyancing

When your customer instructs a firm from our panel (for a residential mortgage or an individual entering into a buy to let mortgage), we provide our instruction via LMS to act on a joint representation basis. Your customer will need to negotiate their fees directly with the chosen firm and will be responsible for paying all the legal fees to the chosen conveyancing firm in connection with the mortgage.

If your customer is a limited company please see the relevant section below.

You can see our panel of conveyancing firms here.

*This list is for the purpose of identifying a suitable firm only. This list should not be downloaded, copied, exported or used for any other purpose.

Separate Representation Conveyancer

If your customer has instructed a firm who are not on our panel (for a residential mortgage or an individual entering into a buy to let mortgage) or chooses to have separate representation, they must consider the following:

  • Their chosen legal firm must have 2 or more partners and be registered with the relevant law society or CLC.
  • TML will still instruct our own legal firm to complete the legal work on behalf of TML.
  • Your customer will be responsible for instructing their conveyancing firm to represent them.
  • Your customer will be responsible for all legal fees, from both firms, in connection with the mortgage.
  • Separate representation transactions can take longer to complete.

Limited Company Buy to Let

If your customer is purchasing or remortgaging a property owned by a limited company or limited partnership (whether in England & Wales or Scotland) then the firm acting for us must be on our residential panel (see above) and be experienced in corporate transactions.

We will assess whether a firm is suitable on a case by case basis, and you should contact legal@themortgagelender.com to check whether the firm your customer wishes to use qualifies.  If the firm is not experienced, then your customer will be required to appoint an alternative firm or opt for separate representation. Should your customer opt for separate representation TML will still instruct our own legal firm to complete the conveyancing work on behalf of TML. Please note your customer will be responsible for paying the fees of the firm chosen to advise us.
