Me and my fiance are planning to acquire a 3 bedroom flat in Hull with a mortgage. We like our Hull conveyancer, however the lender advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel firms or continue with our Hull conveyancer and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. A further alternative is for your Hull conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

We wish to acquire a 2 bedroom flat in Hull with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society.We have a Hull conveyancing lawyer but Nottingham Building Society advised that her practice is not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Nottingham Building Society panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for a Nottingham Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that solicitors will be on the Nottingham Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham Building Society
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Hull I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hull suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities 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 solicitor concerning this matter.
