My fiance and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Godmanchester with a mortgage from Skipton Building Society.We would like to retain our Godmanchester conveyancing lawyer but Skipton Building Society advised that he's not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Skipton Building Society panel firm or keep our local solicitor and pay for a Skipton Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Skipton Building Society use our lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers must be on the Skipton Building Society approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in Godmanchester I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Godmanchester in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Godmanchester and how can you help?

The 1954 Act affords a safeguard to commercial lessees, giving them the dueness to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end.
