I can't travel far from Exminster. What is the rationale as to why all Exminster solicitors are not on all bank panels?

Banks tend to restrict either the type or volume of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm is required to have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the structure of firm, some have decided to limit the size of their panel they use to represent them. It is worth noting that mortgage companies have no liability for the quality of advice supplied by any Exminster lawyer on their approved list. Property fraud was the key driver in the culling of solicitor panels a few years ago even though there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from HM Land Registry indicates that thousands of law firms only conduct less than three conveyances a year.

I'm buying a new build house in Exminster with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Exminster. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Exminster - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
