About to purchase flat in Hillingdon. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Hillingdon property lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Hillingdon on 26/10/2018, valuation was booked 4 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Co-operative and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Are Co-operative entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Hillingdon I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hillingdon suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
