My wife and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Lloyds as we want to conduct improvements to our property in Mile End. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Mile End solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

Lloyds don't usually require a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Mile End bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Mile End conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

The conveyancing practitioner must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Mile End. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Mile End conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market.
