It is unclear 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 Moor Row bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Moor Row conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Your solicitor must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your 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 left on the lease.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Moor Row. My mortgage broker suggested a property lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £200. A few days later, the solicitor contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Bank of Ireland panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
