It would be sensible to find out if the the lease contains any onerous restrictions in the lease. For instance it is reasonably common in Llanidloes leases that pets are not allowed in certain buildings in Llanidloes.

My partner and I are acquiring a ground floor flat in Llanidloes. When we first instructed lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. Our financial adviser called just now to say that they are not on the Aldermore approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a new lawyer that is on their panel or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with Aldermore appointing their own preferred lawyer.
When acquiring a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is normal for the purchaser’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the solicitor has to fulfill. Some building societies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancer should call Aldermore and see 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 Aldermore's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Llanidloes solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another solicitor into the equation.
