Me and my partner are soon to exchange buying a house in Millbank but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the owner of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract however Virgin Money are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Any conveyancer that is on a Virgin Money approved list is obliged to advise Virgin Money of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the price change to Virgin Money then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Virgin Money and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Millbank.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Millbank. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £225. A couple of days later, the conveyancing practitioner called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Millbank I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Millbank in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
