We are hoping to buy a newly converted apartment in Leagrave and Chalton with a loan from Leeds Building Society.We would like to retain our Leagrave and Chalton conveyancing practitioner but Leeds Building Society says he's not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Leeds Building Society panel firm or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan offered to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Leeds Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Leagrave and Chalton. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Leagrave and Chalton - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Leagrave and Chalton, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Leagrave and Chalton with over 90 years remaining are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2072
With only 51 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £30,400 and £35,200 plus legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
