I am buying property in Tiverton. My property lawyer is not on the bank conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to use my Tiverton conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?

They will conduct all the appropriate legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in order. One may select a Tiverton conveyancing practitioner of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancer selected is not on the lender conveyancing panel supplemental charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not in the past sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Tiverton I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Tiverton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Tiverton Leasehold Conveyancing - Sample of Questions you should ask Prior to buying
Are any of leasehold owners in arrears of their service charge liability? If a Tiverton lease has no more than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the value of the apartment. Check with your mortgage company that they are happy with the length of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth discovering what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would be required to have owned the property for two years before you are legally able to exercise a lease extension. Best to be warned if fixing the lift or some other significant cost is anticipated to be shared amongst the leaseholders and could well materially impact the level of the service fees or require a one time invoice.
