I am not in a position to travel far from Barmouth. Can you please clarify why all Barmouth lawyers aren't included on all lender panels?

Before the recession most banks had an approach to risk which is different from today. The financial regulator in 2010 conducted a thematic review into fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the lawyers on your panel. Consequently, lenders have subsequently looked to extract more data from law firms regarding their processes and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Hundreds of firms have been excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the minimum volume of transactions the lenders required.

There are only 72 years left on my flat in Barmouth. I am keen to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What should I do?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to locate the lessor. For most situations a specialist should be helpful to carry out a search and prepare an expert document which can be used as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor both on proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Barmouth.
