As a consequence of this concern banks have reduced their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a manageable size.

We were just about to sign contracts for a freehold house in Kendal. We have hit a snag. Our loan offer with Nottingham Building Society expires on 26/9/2022 but the sellers are suggesting a completion date of 28/9/2022. Is it possible to prolong the loan offer?

The person best placed to deal with your concern is your conveyancer who should assess if they should be discussing with the lender, seller’s solicitors, estate agents or conceivably all three given the history of your house move as of today.
