We are buying a purpose built apartment in Alvaston with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We like our Alvaston conveyancing practitioner but The Royal Bank of Scotland advised that his firm is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland solicitor panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

We are aware of a number of properties in Alvaston which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Alvaston should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Alvaston I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Alvaston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce 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 could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Alvaston?
Conveyancing - in Alvaston or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for negotiating the buying price down or asking the seller to fix the problems before you complete your move.
