My fiance and I intend to purchase a newbuild apartment in Godshill with a loan from Santander.We have a Godshill conveyancing lawyer but Santander informed us she’s not on their approved list of member firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Santander panel firm or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Santander panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the Santander approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Santander

I got the keys to my apartment on 10 July and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Godshill advises it would be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Godshill uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Godshill registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
