We wanted to use a property lawyer in Avonmouth for our home move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage company Lloyds TSB Bank won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?

Lenders normally restrict either the type or the amount of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the profile of firm, a few banks have reduced the amount of solicitor practices they use to represent them. You should note that Lloyds TSB Bank have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Lloyds TSB Bank Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the reduction of solicitor panels since 2008 even though there remains differing views about the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Avonmouth only conduct one or two conveyances a year.

My wife and I purchasing a victorian detached house in Avonmouth. We would like to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these alterations are allowed?

Your conveyancer will review the deeds as conveyancing in Avonmouth can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of alterations or require the consent of a 3rd party. Many additions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

My wife and I are in the throws of looking at houses in Avonmouth and I am about to put in an offer. Is it wise to have a property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Aldermore.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Aldermore, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Our sealed bid on a house in Avonmouth has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Avonmouth. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nottingham going?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Avonmouth conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in Avonmouth.

    The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Avonmouth I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Avonmouth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
