My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Bowness On Windermere. I need to find out if they are accepted on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing panel. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

I am helping my aunt sell her house in Bowness On Windermere. Does the solicitor arrange the EPC or it is for the owner to see to?
After the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s was kept a mandatory part of moving house. An energy performance certificate must be to hand before the property is advertised. This is not a task that law firms ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Bowness On Windermere conveyancing solicitor they may help arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable local providers
I currently have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Bowness On Windermere. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Principality?
You must advise Principality in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Principality will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Principality directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Principality conveyancing panel firm.
About to purchase house in Bowness On Windermere. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Bowness On Windermere solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

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? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. 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?
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Bowness On Windermere I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Bowness On Windermere for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
