I am considering applying for a HSBC mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Hyde Park with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for HSBC ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel, but HSBC would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Hyde Park solicitor - who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Hyde Park postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Hyde Park.

How does conveyancing in Hyde Park differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hyde Park come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Hyde Park usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hyde Park or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Hyde Park I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hyde Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign 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 regarding this matter.

Am I best advised to instruct a Hyde Park conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can deal with the legal formalities but his firm is located 200kilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Hyde Park conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were impressed that must surpass using an unknown Hyde Park conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
