Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Farnham Royal

I am selling my maisonette in Farnham Royal and the estate agent has just called to advise that the purchasers are changing their law firm. The reason given is that the lender will only work with solicitors on their approved list. On what basis would a major mortgage company only deal with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to select to handle their conveyancing in Farnham Royal ?

Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms that can represent them, but in recent years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for many years.

Lending institutions point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the reduction – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any impact on this.

Should you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities 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 solicitor about this matter.
