My apartment in Ellesmere Port is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the solicitor need to be required to be on the UBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the UBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.

After the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments remained a required component of selling a property. An EPC should be to hand before the property is placed on the market.

Your lawyer has to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 provisions for your 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Ellesmere Port I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ellesmere Port in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months 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 term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

You are free to appoint your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers have an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
