I am considering applying for a Aldermore mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Mobberley with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Aldermore will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

We are buying a 3 bedroom semi in Mobberley. Our aim is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will legal investigations on the property include enquiries to ascertain if these alterations were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Mobberley can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain works or need the consent of another owner. Certain additions need local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
Is it correct that all Mobberley CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel?
A selection of banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Mobberley concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Mobberley I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Mobberley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
