I plan on acquiring property in Aspley Guise. My Solicitor is not on the bank conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to use my Aspley Guise conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?
One will need to use a solicitor to deal with the legal work required when you need a loan to buy your property. The property lawyer will conduct all the essential investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One could instruct a Aspley Guise lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the solicitor selected is not on the lender conveyancing panel further costs will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not previously sought membership they should do so.

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
