I plan on acquiring an apartment in Burntwood. My Solicitor is not listed on the bank conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to continue with my Burntwood conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
Your options include
- Proceed with your chosen Burntwood conveyancing practitioner but your lender will undoubtedly instruct a solicitor from their approved list. The net result is additional fees together with likely interruption.
- Appoint a fresh lawyer to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Convince your conveyancer to pull out all the stops to get accepted on the lender’s conveyancing panel
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Burntwood so that I can pop in to their offices if necessary.
As opposed to twenty years ago, most mortgage companies no longer need their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. It will still be necessary for you to provide ID documents and there are still distinct benefits to instructing a locally based ayer, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Burntwood.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Burntwood I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Burntwood for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
