Me and my partner are buying a leasehold flat in Croxley Green. My lawyer is not listed on the lender conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to continue with my Croxley Green conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You have numerous choices open to you here
- Complete the purchase with your existing Croxley Green lawyer but your bank will no doubt instruct a conveyancing practitioner on their conveyancing panel. The net result is additional fees and probable delay.
- Get a fresh property lawyer to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your property lawyer to attempt to join the mortgage company panel

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Croxley Green. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Croxley Green - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
