I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Denmark Hill for our house move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage company Virgin Money won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?

My wife and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Aldermore as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Denmark Hill. Are we obliged to select a local Denmark Hill solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Aldermore would not normally instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
We expect to receive a OIP from Aldermore this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Aldermore recommend any Denmark Hill solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Denmark Hill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Denmark Hill. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
My colleague suggested that if I am buying in Denmark Hill I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Denmark Hill.
I am attracted to a couple of apartments in Denmark Hill both have approximately forty five years left on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Denmark Hill. The lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.
