We selected a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Morpeth yesterday. Reviewing the small print it is apparent thatI am responsible for costs even if the sale aborts. Would I be best advised to choose a web based solicitor practice offering no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Morpeth?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to cover the cases that fail to complete. Please beware that such deals tend not to cover expenses e.g. Morpeth conveyancing search costs.
My fiancee and I are in the throws of viewing apartments in Morpeth and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with Lloyds.

As you are taking out a mortgage with Lloyds, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Morpeth bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Morpeth conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the property lawyer is on the mortgage company approved list, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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 remaining.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Principality. Is it usual for Principality to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Morpeth is approved on their conveyancing panel? Principality have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Morpeth I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Morpeth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years 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.
