My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Kingswinford. I I would like to check if they are accepted on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list of lawyers. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Kingswinford I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kingswinford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated 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 may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
My husband and I are buying a studio flat in Kingswinford. At the point of instructing our lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. Our mortgage broker emailed yesterday to advise that they don't appear to be on the UBS approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we simply pick a new conveyancing practitioner that is on their panel or do we pay for dual representation, with UBS selecting their own approved lawyer.
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is usual for the purchaser’s solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the property lawyer has to fulfill. Some building societies now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your lawyer should call UBS to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on UBS's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Kingswinford solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another conveyancer into the equation.
