I am considering applying for a Barclays mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Amersham with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Barclays ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel, but Barclays would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Amersham I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Amersham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor 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 current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
