I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Bakewell. I I am struggling to find out whether they are on the Barclays approved list of lawyers. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Bakewell. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bakewell
There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Bakewell in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may not grant a loan on a flying freehold house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bakewell.

I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Bakewell. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as normal because all rents and service invoices will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
