Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mottingham

We are buying a 2 bedroom apartment in Mottingham with a mortgage. We like our Mottingham lawyer, but the bank says he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have little choice but to use one of the bank panel solicitors or retain our Mottingham lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; can we not require that the lender use our Mottingham conveyancing practitioner ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Mottingham conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Mottingham. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Mottingham?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

No. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Skipton. Mottingham conveyancing lawyers were appointed. How long does it take for Skipton to issue the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Skipton done the valuation? Have you informed Skipton as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Skipton conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Mottingham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Mottingham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected 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 may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign 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 regarding this.

Technically speaking you should not need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are based in Mottingham
