I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Stapleton off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Co-operative. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Stapleton bank branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Stapleton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the conveyancer is on the lender panel, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the 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.

    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. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Stapleton

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Stapleton conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will provide the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
