Can you point me to a directory of Leeds Building Society panel solicitors in Amesbury on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are in need of a Amesbury solicitor on the Leeds Building Society please make the most of our facility.
It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Amesbury bank branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Amesbury conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
The solicitor has to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Intending to buy a maisonette in Amesbury. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Amesbury property lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
My wife and I are planning on selling our home in Amesbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Amesbury. Having lived in Amesbury for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
