we are a couple who wish to acquire a newbuild flat in Midhurst with a homeloan from The Mortgage Works.We would like to retain our Midhurst conveyancing practitioner but The Mortgage Works advised that she’s not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Mortgage Works panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for a The Mortgage Works panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that The Mortgage Works use our lawyer?

No, not really. The loan offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers must be on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Mortgage Works

We suggest that you talk with two or three firms including non Midhurst conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be useful:

    If a Midhurst lease has no more than eighty years it will impact the value of the property. It is worth checking with your bank that they are happy with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely need a lease extension at some point and it is worth discovering what this will be. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the residence for 24 months before you are entitled to exercise a lease extension. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments? How much is the yearly service fee and ground rent?
