I today plan to offer on a house that appears to meet my requirements, at a reasonable price which is making it more attractive. I have just been informed that it's a leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are particular concerns purchasing a leasehold house in Bloxwich. Conveyancing solicitors have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Bloxwich ?

Most houses in Bloxwich are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. It is clear that you are buying in Bloxwich in which case you should be looking for a Bloxwich conveyancing solicitor and check that they have experience in transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a leaseholder you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions for example requiring the freeholder’sconsent to conduct alterations. You may also be required to pay a maintenance charge towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the house is part of an estate. Your solicitor should report to you on the legal implications.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Me and my husband have just had an offer agreed on a property and had an appointment on Tuesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They have informed us that when it comes to choosing a conveyancing practitioner that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancers then we will have to pay out an extra charge of about two hundred pounds. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to instruct a solicitor to act for them in addition to the one we choose to act on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their fees. I have asked Leeds Building Society to provide me with a list so I can request quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told that I need to check with each individual conveyancer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?

Ask Leeds Building Society what their criteria for panel membership is for a conveyancer.Then ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Leeds Building Society before. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Leeds Building Society. Another option is to use our search facility and we should be able to locate a solicitor in Bloxwich on the approved list for Leeds Building Society.
