We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Yorkshire BS as we want to carry out improvements to our property in Ingatestone. Are we obliged to select a high street Ingatestone solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Yorkshire BS don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
I'm in the throws of looking at houses in Ingatestone and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a lawyer appointed at this stage? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Santander.
It would be wise to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the selling agent. As you are seeking a mortgage with Santander, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.
It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Ingatestone bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Ingatestone conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the conveyancer is on the mortgage company panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Is it best to choose a Ingatestone conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? An old friend can execute the legal work however his firm is located 300miles away.
The primary upside of using a high street Ingatestone conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, present your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and in the main were content that must trump using an unknown Ingatestone conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.
