My husband and I decided to purchase a newly converted apartment in Spennymoor with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We use our Spennymoor conveyancing practitioner but The Royal Bank of Scotland informed us her practice is not on their approved list of member firms. It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Spennymoor I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease.

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
