Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Hall Green. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Hall Green - 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.

Myself and my fiance have just had an offer agreed on a flat and had meeting on Monday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They advised me that when it comes to choosing a solicitor that unless they are on their approved list of solicitors then we will be subject to an an additional fee of £200. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to appoint a property lawyer to act on their behalf in addition to the one we choose to act on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their fees. I have asked the Post Office to furnish me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved conveyancers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. What would be the best way of going about this?
You can enquire of the Post Office what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Then ask the lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for the Post Office historically. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with the Post Office.
