My fiance and I are intent on purchasing a flat in Edge Hill. My property lawyer has never been on on the mortgage company solicitor list. Is it possible for me to retain my Edge Hill conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?

The conveyancing practitioner will conduct all the necessary legal checks on the property, ensuring that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with.

However, where the lawyer selected is not on the bank approved list further costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so provided your conveyancer has not in the past sought membership they should do so.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Edge Hill. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Edge Hill
Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
Am I better off to go with a Edge Hill conveyancing solicitor based in the area that I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can deal with the conveyancing however her office is 200kilometers away.
The primary upside of using a local Edge Hill conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and in the main were content that should trump using an unfamiliar Edge Hill conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
