My IFA requires my Grove lawyer’ panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have contacted my local Grove branch but they cant find it on their system.
Have you tried contacting your Grove solicitor about this?. Most Grove conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Grove I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Grove for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Grove. I happened to land on a web site which appears to be the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities completed via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
I am looking at a two apartments in Grove both have about forty five years remaining on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are no two ways about it. A leasehold apartment in Grove is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the marketability of the premises. The majority of buyers and mortgage companies, leases with under 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Grove conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.
I acquired a split level flat in Grove, conveyancing having been completed 3 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Grove with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2086
With only 63 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £16,200 and £18,600 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
Why can't I complete my conveyancing in Grove on May bank holiday?
Because on completion the sale price will pass between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s solicitor and currently this can only happen on a business day. So you can't complete on a saturday or sunday either.
