I am thinking of remortgaging my apartment in Earlsfield, does my lawyer have to be on the Yorkshire BS Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, but Yorkshire BS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I am the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Earlsfield. The Earlsfield property was put into my name in October. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
Is it the case that all Earlsfield conveyancing solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Many lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My wife and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Barclays as we wish to carry out alterations to our property in Earlsfield. Do we need to select a local Earlsfield solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Barclays don't usually instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Barclays list.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Earlsfield I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Earlsfield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
