My partner and I have arranged a further advance on our home loan from Barclays as we wish to conduct a loft conversion to our home in Aston Clinton. Are we obliged to select a local Aston Clinton solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Barclays would not normally appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Barclays panel.
It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Aston Clinton bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Aston Clinton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the solicitor is on the mortgage company approved list, they must comply with the CML Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that should trump using an unknown Aston Clinton conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

You can instruct a conveyancing practitioner now requesting that they generate a file for you. This will facilitate: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s conveyancing practitioner to send out the draft contract. However, do not ask your conveyancer to order searches until you receive your valuation report via Santander and you are willing to proceed.
