I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must leave my rented flat in West Bromwich by 9/6/2021. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Can I complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into short term accommodation?
The normal practice is not to give notice on a rental until exchange of contracts has taken place. If you have not previously done so, speak to your lawyer and urge them to they apply pressure on the sellers lawyers, try to an agreed time frame that everyone will aim towards
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in West Bromwich I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in West Bromwich suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

My wife and I have recently had an offer agreed on a house and had meeting on Friday with Nationwide for the mortgage. They warned us that when it comes to appointing a conveyancer that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancers then we will be subject to an an extra charge of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to appoint a property lawyer to act on their behalf in addition to the one we appoint on our behalf and we are liable for their invoice. I have requested Nationwide to provide me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
You should ask Nationwide what their criteria for joining their panel is for a solicitor.Thereafter ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Nationwide before. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Nationwide. Another option is to utilise our search facility and we should be able to find you a solicitor in West Bromwich on the approved list for Nationwide.
