Is it the case that all Kingsley conveyancing solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Kingsley. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an advanced payment of £225. Not long after, the conveyancing practitioner called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Co-operative panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Kingsley I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kingsley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed apartment in Kingsley.Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed but I have recently received a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the service charge as usual because all rents and maintenance charges should be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
