I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Fairbourne. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
We just had an offer accepted to buy with Darlington Building Society. I visited a few high street firms yet am struggling to find a Fairbourne conveyancing firm on the Darlington Building Society approved list. Can you assist?

I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for hinderance in Fairbourne house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Fairbourne.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Fairbourne I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Fairbourne suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
Me and my wife have just had an offer agreed on a apartment and had meeting on Wednesday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They have informed me that when it comes to selecting a property lawyer that if they are not on their approved panel of lawyers then we will have to pay out an extra fee of £200. This is because they will then have to appoint a conveyancer to act on their behalf as well as the one we appoint on our behalf and we are liable for their invoice. I have requested the Post Office to send me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
You should ask the Post Office what their criteria for panel membership is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for the Post Office in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just double check with the Post Office. Alternatively please use our search facility and we may be able to locate a solicitor in Fairbourne on the approved list for the Post Office.
