The Mortgage Works have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 18/7/2019, the requirements read as follows :

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Loughborough. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Loughborough bank branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Loughborough conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

Your property lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Loughborough solicitor - who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Aldermore will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Aldermore 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 Loughborough 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.

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Loughborough. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently had a yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and service invoices should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
