I am expecting a mortgage with Nat West. My intention is to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Irlam. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
We are purchasing a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Irlam who is on the Clydesdale approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Clydesdale . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Irlam.
I am considering applying for a RBS mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Irlam with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for RBS ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the RBS conveyancing panel, but RBS 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.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Irlam in advance of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to give a mortgage on such a home.

I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Irlam, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable flats in Irlam with an extended lease are worth £179,000. The ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2078
With just 57 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £26,600 and £30,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
