We are hoping to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment in Perry Barr with a mortgage. We have a Perry Barr conveyancer, however the bank advise he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have no choice but to instruct one of the lender panel solicitors or retain our Perry Barr property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. Another option that might be available is for your Perry Barr conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Perry Barr I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease.

If you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted.

You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
