I can't travel far from Winkleigh. Is there a reason why all Winkleigh property lawyers are not on all bank panels?
Mortgage Companies normally impose restrictions on either the type or volume of conveyancing firms on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that the practice must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the nature of firm, some banks made a decision to reduce the number of practices they allow to represent them. It is worth noting that lenders have no liability for the quality of service given by any Winkleigh property lawyer on their approved list. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels in the last decade notwithstanding that there are contrary assessments about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data via HMLR exposes that thousands of law firms only transact one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel pruning question why law firms deserve the right to be listed on a lender panel when clearly property law is not their primary expertise?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Winkleigh I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Winkleigh for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign 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 lawyer concerning this matter.
