Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Bowes Park is more expensive?
The conveyancing charges on a leasehold property in Bowes Park is often more expensive than on a freehold acquisition or disposal. This is because there is an amount of additional investigations necessary in liaising with the landlord and management company to collate the evidence concerning whether the rent and maintenance fee have been paid and whether there are any large sums expected to be spent in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the block.
My wife and I are purchasing a flat in Bowes Park. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we have to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from Nottingham as we wish to conduct renovations to our house in Bowes Park. Do we need to appoint a nearby Bowes Park solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Nottingham do not ordinarily instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Nottingham list.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Bowes Park on 15/2/2023, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I wish to let out my leasehold flat in Bowes Park. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Even though your last Bowes Park conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can check your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the premises. The accepted inference is that if the deeds are silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must seek consent via your landlord or other appropriate person in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining consent. The consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If the lease prohibits you from letting out the property you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.

Myself and my partner have recently had an offer accepted on a flat and had meeting on Wednesday with HSBC for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to choosing a property lawyer that if they are not on their approved panel of property lawyers then we will be subject to an a further fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to instruct a solicitor to act on their behalf in addition to the one we appoint on our behalf and we are liable for their costs. I have asked HSBC to send me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved solicitors but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. What would be the best way of going about this?
Ask HSBC what their criteria for joining their panel is for a solicitor.Then ask the conveyancer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for HSBC in the past. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC. Another option is to make use of our search facility and we may be able to find you a conveyancing practitioner in Bowes Park on the approved list for HSBC.
