I am not well enough to travel far from Marple Bridge. What is the rationale as to why all Marple Bridge property lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The elimination of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in mortgage companies culling less reputable firms from their panel of approved conveyancing practitioners .

How does conveyancing in Marple Bridge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Marple Bridge contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Marple Bridge usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Marple Bridge or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Marple Bridge I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Marple Bridge in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
