Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is expelled from the Aldermore Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Carnforth?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of maisonettes in Carnforth which have about fifty years left on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
A lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease deteriorates and it becomes more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is advisable to extend the lease term. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We recommend you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
