I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must vacate my let out apartment in Crowle by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. How realistic is it to complete in three weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to give notice for your lease until you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, notify to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the sellers side, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work to achieve
we are a couple who wish to acquire a 3 bedroom apartment in Crowle with a residential mortgage from National Westminster Bank.We have a Crowle conveyancing lawyer but National Westminster Bank advised that his firm is not on their approved list of member firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a National Westminster Bank panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that National Westminster Bank use our lawyer?
No, not really. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the National Westminster Bank approved list. in the past, most banks 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for National Westminster Bank

Crowle domestic long term leases are for a fixed period - normally ninety nine years when they started. However a significant appartments in Crowle were built or converted 35 or more years ago and so such leases now have under eighty years left to run. That may seem like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions tend to require leases to have at least seventy five years unexpired to be mortgageable. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching eighty years. To maximise your property value you should be considering whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Furthermore strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease is less than eighty years the premium to be paid to extend starts to increase.
