You have limited options available to you.

Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Balsall Heath conveyancing searches.

My husband and I are buying a newbuild flat in Balsall Heath with a homeloan from Nationwide Building Society.We have a Balsall Heath conveyancing solicitor but Nationwide Building Society says he's not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Nationwide Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Nationwide Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the Nationwide Building Society approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide Building Society

    The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. 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? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

I own a leasehold flat in Balsall Heath. Conveyancing and Chelsea Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing practitioner in Balsall Heath who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Balsall Heath conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I purchased a split level flat in Balsall Heath, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent flats in Balsall Heath with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2090

You have 68 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
