I am selling my house in East Beckton and the EA has just text me to advise that the purchasers are switching solicitor. I am told that this is due to the fact that the bank will only engage with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. Why would a big named lender only deal with certain law firms rather the firm that they want to appoint for their conveyancing in East Beckton ?

Lenders have always had panels of law firms they are content to work with, but in the past few years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have represented them for more than 15 years.

Mortgage companies attribute this action to a rise in fraud by way of justification for the reduction – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. Banks tend not to disclose how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your buyers are unlikely to have any impact on this.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in East Beckton I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in East Beckton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as normal as all rents and service invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
