It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Hazlemere building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend.

The lawyer must comply with the CML Handbook section two conditions for your lender.

We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Hazlemere. My financial adviser suggested a property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £175.

I was pointed in your direction by three or four local estate agents in Hazlemere to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your site rather than a competitor’s?

We don’t give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
