Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a mortgage company your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Mousehole conveyancing searches.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Mousehole

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Mousehole. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and service invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

Me and my partner are buying a three room flatin Mousehole with a residential mortgage from a mortgage company. We wish to instruct our lawyer in Mousehole yet our lender advise he's not approved on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the our bank panel firms or keep our Mousehole conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The lender home loan issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the lender's conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had open panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Mousehole : a mortgagee 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
