I am not well enough to travel far from Longton. Can you please spell out why all Longton conveyancers aren't automatically on all lender panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for banks to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s standpoint, the the contrary view is that mortgage companies are becoming ever more anxious and consider it essential to protect them from illegal activities. As a consequence of this concern banks are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

I am planning to move house in June. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Longton. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across this page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent but this can only be done after the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Longton or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Longton.
Is it the case that all Longton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Co-operative conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Longton I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Longton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated 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 commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Our sealed bid on house in Longton was accepted, the seller does however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have submitted an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Longton. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Nottingham going with Nottingham?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Longton conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and arrange for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
