Is it the case that all Millom solicitor practices on the UBS conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the UBS conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many banks do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be governed by the CLC.
Intending to buy a maisonette in Millom. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Millom lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Millom I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Millom in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities 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 solicitor about this matter.
