I am considering applying for a Nationwide mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in East Beckton with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel, but Nationwide would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

As far as conveyancing in East Beckton registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place after the purchaser has moved in to the premises so post completion formalities is not typically an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in East Beckton with the aim of speeding up the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in East Beckton can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ representatives. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this by asking your conveyancers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is under 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? East Beckton leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring necessitate a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such changes. If you dont have the consents to hand do not contact the landlord without contacting your solicitor in the first instance. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled prior to the flat being marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a property where a dispute is unsettled. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic as opposed to unresolved.
