I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Spondon building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Spondon conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The lawyer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Just bought a semi-detached house in Spondon , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Spondon conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are addressed.

As far as conveyancing in Spondon registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

What are the frequently found problems that you witness in leases for Spondon properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Spondon is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Service charge per centages that don't add up correctly leaving a shortfall Insurance obligations

A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. HSBC Bank, Bank of Scotland, and Platform Home Loans Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.
