The final balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would much rather use a Wem based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel lawyers if you want the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company to check if they offer you a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Wem.
This question may be naive but I am new to the home moving as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Wem. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Wem?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Wem. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Clydesdale as we intend to conduct renovations to our property in Wem. Are we obliged to appoint a bricks and mortar Wem solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Clydesdale do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale list.
I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Wem bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Wem conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called 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 solicitor is on the bank panel, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook requirements 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the agent told us that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's recommended lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Wem
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Wem conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
