I am selling my house in Flamborough. Will my solicitor have to be required to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.

I own a leasehold flat in Flamborough. Conveyancing was finalised in 2009. I have heard that I mustn’t let the the remaining lease term to get too low. Is this right?
Flamborough domestic long term leases are for a prescribed term - normally just under one hundred years when they are first granted. However many flats in Flamborough were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so such leases now have fewer than 80 years remaining. This may seem like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders generally need leases to have a minimum of 75 years remaining to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing eighty years. To enhance your property value you should be thinking about whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also advantages to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease is below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
