My husband and I are buying a purpose built apartment in Aston with a homeloan from Accord Mortgages Ltd.We like our Aston conveyancing solicitor but Accord Mortgages Ltd advised that he's not listed on their approved list of member firms. we are left little option but to use a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the Accord Mortgages Ltd solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Accord Mortgages Ltd
Just acquired a semi-detached house in Aston , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Aston conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are dealt with.
As far as conveyancing in Aston is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two flats in Aston both have in the region of forty five years remaining on the leases. should I be concerned?
There are plenty of short leases in Aston. The lease is a right to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We advise that you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.
