Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Sacriston. What is the rationale as to why all Sacriston conveyancers are not on all lender panels?
As inequitable as it may appear for lenders to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s point of view, the flip side is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and feel it crucial to shield themselves against mortgage fraud. As a consequence of this concern lenders are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.
I am about to complete on the purchase of a property in Sacriston but as a result of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of three thousand pounds taking the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Aldermore will not permit this. Why were they notified?
The conveyancing practitioner that is on a Aldermore approved list is obliged to disclose to Aldermore of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to disclose the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Sacriston.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Sacriston I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Sacriston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they 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.
