LendInvest has named firms JMW Solicitors LLP and Lightfoots Solicitors on its first official panel of solicitors for its buy-to-let products.
The specialist property finance lender, based in the North West, has significant experience in handling a range of real estate finance cases for both institutional and private lenders.
Lightfoots are experts in complex property finance cases and have over 30 years experience providing legal services to mortgage lenders.
Ian Boden, Sales Director at LendInvest, said: “We want to provide the best end-to-end experience for our borrowers, which is why we choose our legal partners very carefully.
“Having two of the leading conveyancing firms in our space on the new panel is very encouraging only six months post launch, and sets us in great stead for ramping up our deal flow for the rest of the year.
“We are actively seeking to work with firms that are doing things differently, and more importantly, are open to taking innovative initiatives to tackle traditionally slower processes.”
Both JMW Solicitors LLP and Lightfoots Solicitors are experienced in dealing with introducer-led business, offering dual representation and coverage across England and Wales.
Jodi Lund, partner at JMW Solicitors, said: “As a firm, we are acutely aware of the specialist requirements of the BTL investor.
“Turnaround times are generally quicker, meaning we allocate experienced solicitors who are experts in ensuring a smooth customer journey throughout the conveyancing process.”
Joe Middleton, partner at Lightfoots Solicitors, has welcomed the opportunity to work with LendInvest, owed in part to its diverse range of mortgage products.
“Returning to form LendInvest’s first legal panel for its BTL product is a testament to our existing relationship with the lender, and our performance as a conveyancer for the company’s bridging products,” said Middleton.
