When it comes to mortgage companies such as Co-operative, do Earls Barton property lawyers have to pay a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

Is it the case that all Earls Barton solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the organisation would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Earls Barton building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend.

Provided that the lawyer is on the bank approved list, they must adhere to the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 left on the lease.

How does conveyancing in Earls Barton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Earls Barton come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Earls Barton tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Earls Barton or who has acted in the same development.
