I am acquiring a ground floor flat in Gants Hill. My Conveyancer is not on the lender conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to appoint my Gants Hill conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?

One must have a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the formalities if you require a mortgage to buy your property. The lawyer will carry out all the appropriate due diligence on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. You could select a Gants Hill solicitor of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancer appointed is not on the mortgage company approved list supplemental costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so where your solicitor has not previously sought membership they should take the chance to apply.

If you plan to refinance then Barclays will require that you use a conveyancer on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Gants Hill I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Gants Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Gants Hill where we have experienced a few leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Gants Hill conveyancing firms. Can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

I am Googling for Gants Hill competitive conveyancing fees. Can I be sure that all the Gants Hill law firms that are listed on your site are on the lender conveyancing panel?
