My husband and I are hoping to acquire a 2 bedroom apartment in Leigh with a mortgage. We have a Leigh solicitor, but the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have little option but to select one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or retain our Leigh conveyancing practitioner and pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; can we not insist that the lender use our Leigh solicitor ?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Leigh conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Leigh and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to disclose this to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
The lawyer is legally required to clarify with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Is it best to appoint a Leigh conveyancing solicitor based in the area that I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can execute the conveyancing but her office is 200miles away.
The primary upside of using a high street Leigh conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and they were happy that must outweigh using an unknown Leigh conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Leigh. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a half-yearly service charge demand – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as normal because all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Leigh - A selection of Queries Prior to buying
Where a Leigh lease has less than eighty years it will impact the marketability of the apartment. Check with your lender that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. A short lease means that you will probably require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will be required to have been the owner of the property for 24 months before you are eligible to extend the lease. What prohibitions are contained in the Leigh Lease? The best form of lease arrangement is where the freehold reversion is owned by the leaseholders. In this scenario the leaseholders benefit from control and although a managing agent is frequently employed where it is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves.
