Can you point me to a directory of Barclays panel conveyancers in Woodcote on the Building Society Association’s Website?

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Woodcote bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Woodcote conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Your conveyancer has to comply with the CML Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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.

Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Woodcote conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
