I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a Snaith based conveyancing firm?

It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Snaith building society branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Snaith conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the lawyer is on the lender approved list, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Nottingham are being pedantic. The Snaith solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nottingham are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Snaith ?

I purchased a 2 bed flat in Snaith, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar properties in Snaith with a long lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2104
