I am considering applying for a Kent Reliance mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Bovey Tracey with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Kent Reliance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Bovey Tracey building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Bovey Tracey conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Your property lawyer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions for your 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

It is not always the case and you are at liberty to opt for whichever solicitor of your choosing for your Bovey Tracey conveyancing. The solicitor suggested by an estate agent may not always be the right property lawyer, they may put forward their own conveyancing firm who are based far away. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain updates.
