Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Heaton Moor conveyancing solicitors are appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Yorkshire BS?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Yorkshire BS completed the valuation? Have you advised Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am expecting a AIP from RBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Heaton Moor solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Heaton Moor solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

I work for a busy estate agent office in Heaton Moor where we see a number of flat sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received inconsistent advice from local Heaton Moor conveyancing firms. Can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease 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. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. 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 sale.
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.

My 20yr old son is just in the process of moving house, he had his mortgage in principle. After the seller agreed the offer on the flat we telephoned the building society to go forward with his. We were disappointed to discover that banks do not accept all conveyancer, they have to be on a list, is this right?
Banks ordinarily imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that banks have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Heaton Moor conveyancing practitioner on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Unlikely.
