The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's major mortgage companies.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Llanrwst bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Llanrwst conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the property lawyer is on the mortgage company approved list, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Llanrwst. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have recently had a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
