I am selling my house in Little Hulton. Does my property lawyer have to be required to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently in recent years.
We previously instructed conveyancers locally in Little Hulton on the Barclays solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional charge for handling the Barclays mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Barclays?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Barclays but by your Little Hulton conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Barclays panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
We were going to get a OIP from Lloyds this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Little Hulton solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Little Hulton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Little Hulton. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
I am buying a new build flat in Little Hulton. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Little Hulton
Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Little Hulton I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Little Hulton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
