I am considering applying for a Nottingham mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Hope Valley with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Nottingham will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

We have been told by various friends to expect up to two months for Hope Valley conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The paperwork was only forwarded from the vendors conveyancer a few days ago so does the clock start running now?

Do not count on completing on a specific date until contracts are exchanged. Whatever assurances the people you are buying from or selling to make, or your estate agent makes don't rely on them. More stress is caused to buyers and sellers by unfulfilled assurances than any other issue when it comes to conveyancing in Hope Valley.
