My wife and I are intent on purchasing a leasehold flat in Alfreton. My property lawyer has never been on on the bank solicitor list. Am I still permitted to retain my Alfreton conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank approved list?

- Get a new lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, ensuring that they are on the lender conveyancing panel.
- Convince your property lawyer to do everything possible to get accepted on the bank’s conveyancing panel
My wife and I are due to complete on the purchase of a house in Alfreton but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the owner in the sum of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract yet TSB are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
The solicitor that is on a TSB conveyancing panel is obliged to inform TSB of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Alfreton.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Alfreton I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Alfreton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 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 existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
