Our Shenley Brook End conveyancer has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My solicitor says that he is obliged to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action right?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Shenley Brook End I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Shenley Brook End suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

My son is about to join the property ladder, he had his mortgage in principle. When the offer was accepted on flat we contacted the mortgage company to issue the formal offer.

Lenders normally imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that lenders have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Shenley Brook End conveyancer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Unlikely.
