If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Tonypandy - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title.

My wife and I are acquiring a garden flat in Tonypandy. When we first instructed lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream lender panels. The mortgage broker contacted us today to say that they are not on the Yorkshire BS approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we just choose a different conveyancer that is on their panel or do we cover the costs for separate representation, with Yorkshire BS selecting their own preferred property lawyer.
When acquiring a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is usual for the buyer’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the solicitor has to fulfill. Some lenders now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should call Yorkshire BS and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Yorkshire BS's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Tonypandy lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the equation.
