My partner and I are looking to buy a property in England Springs and have appointed a England Springs conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Skipton Building Society have this evening contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our England Springs solicitor is not on their conveyancing panel. Is this a problem?
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred England Springs lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my let out property in England Springs by 22/5/2019. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. How realistic is it to complete in 5 weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into short term accommodation?
The normal practice is not to provide notice for your tenancy unless your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not already done so, speak to your lawyer and urge them to they apply pressure on the other solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work to achieve
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in England Springs I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in England Springs for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I invested in buying a studio flat in England Springs, conveyancing having been completed in 2001. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in England Springs with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2083
You have 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £14,300 and £16,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
