We were going to get a AIP from Nationwide this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Colindale solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Colindale. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Kent Reliance 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 Colindale solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Colindale I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Colindale suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Colindale?

Conveyancing - in Colindale or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
