    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I have read on various consumer advice websites that before choosing a conveyancing lawyer they need approved by your lender. I am a FTB but I have an AIP with Birmingham Midhshires and I already have a high street conveyancing lawyer in Southbourne lined up. Can Birmingham Midhshires insist on an approved conveyancer to be selected? Does a list of approved conveyancers even exist so I can choose a conveyancing solicitor in Southbourne?

You need to instruct a solicitor that is on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. Just ring your preferred Southbourne conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. If they are not approved you have a couple of options available to you here:

  • Complete the deal with your existing Southbourne solicitor but Birmingham Midhshires will need to appoint a conveyancer on their conveyancing panel. The net result is additional cost and likely frustration.
  • Get a new conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the Birmingham Midhshires conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your lawyer to pull out all the stops to get accepted on the Birmingham Midhshires conveyancing panel.
