My husband and I are hoping to buy a purpose built flat in Staindrop with a homeloan from Birmingham Midshires.We would like to retain our Staindrop conveyancing practitioner but Birmingham Midshires advised that she’s not listed on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Birmingham Midshires panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for a Birmingham Midshires panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Birmingham Midshires use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Birmingham Midshires conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Birmingham Midshires

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Staindrop I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Staindrop for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

I am 3 weeks into a leasehold purchase having been referred to a firm by the selling agent to do our conveyancing in Staindrop. I am am starting to be frustrated with the quality of service. Can you help me find new conveyancers?
