I plan on buying residence in Alfreton. My property lawyer is not on the mortgage company conveyancing list. Can I still retain my Alfreton conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank approved list?
You will need to use a conveyancer to deal with the formalities if you need a loan to buy your home. They will conduct all the essential legal checks on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in order. One may appoint a Alfreton lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, if the property lawyer appointed is not a member of the mortgage company conveyancing panel additional charges will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not in the past sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Alfreton. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all rents and service charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
