Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Moston who acted for me 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of similar values with a home loan from Barnsley Building Society. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Stick with what I know or do I try and find an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you shop around you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as £125. That being said, assuming were pleased with the assistance the firm gave you mightlive to rue opting for an a cheaper lawyer. Remember to ensure that the solicitor can act for Barnsley Building Society.

All was ready to complete my purchase in Moston next Monday. My lawyer now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. These requirements are not unique to conveyancing in Moston.

I am buying a property in Moston. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Skipton have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Skipton your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Skipton where a lease fails to satisfy these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Moston.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Moston on 23/2/2021, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Leeds Building Society and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Are Leeds Building Society entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Moston I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Moston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
