My husband and I have organised the release of further funds on our home loan from Nationwide as we intend to conduct alterations to our property in Burnage. Are we obliged to choose a high street Burnage solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Nationwide would not normally appoint a member of 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 Nationwide list.
I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Burnage building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Burnage conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Your lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. 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.
About to purchase house in Burnage. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Burnage property lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
I used Wolstenholmes several years ago for my conveyancing in Burnage. Now, I need the files but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Burnage I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Burnage suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
