My fiance and I are buying a purpose built flat in Ewloe with a homeloan from Yorkshire Building Society.We use our Ewloe conveyancing practitioner but Yorkshire Building Society advised that she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Yorkshire Building Society panel firm or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Yorkshire Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Yorkshire Building Society use our lawyer?

No, not really. The loan offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers will be on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Ewloe from the perspective of speeding up the sale process?

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Ewloe can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should make sure that you are holding the original share certificate. Arranging a duplicate share certificate can be a time consuming formality and slows down many a Ewloe home move. If a new share is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. If there is a history of conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as over rather than unresolved. A minority of Ewloe leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s permission? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Ewloe leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring necessitate a licence issued by the Landlord approving such alterations. Where you dont have the approvals to hand do not communicate with the landlord without contacting your conveyancer in advance.

You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.

We are about to buying a property in Ewloe. Could the property lawyer keep our transaction price confidential from the likes of Zoopla. Is this possible and how?

HMLR are legally bound to disclose price paid information on a register of the title for residential properties countrywide including premises in Ewloe.
