My husband and I are intent on purchasing a leasehold flat in Littleover. My Conveyancer has never been on on the lender approved panel. Can I still retain my Littleover conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You must instruct a conveyancer to deal with the legal work required when you need a loan to purchase your property. They will conduct all the appropriate legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place. You can instruct a Littleover solicitor of your choice. Nevertheless, where the property lawyer appointed is not on the lender approved list additional costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so provided your conveyancer has not in the past sought membership they can do so.

My wife and I buying a detached bungalow in Littleover. Our aim is to an extension at the rear at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to ascertain if these works are allowed?
Your solicitor will check the registered title as conveyancing in Littleover will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of works or need the permission of a 3rd party. Certain works require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Littleover off the council. I have a mortgage offer with UBS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with UBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Littleover conveyancer having checked that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Littleover surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
