I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and must leave my let out flat in New Beckenham by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into temporary accommodation?

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in New Beckenham before retaining solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks will not give a mortgage on this type of home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can check via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in New Beckenham. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in New Beckenham to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
I have noted on various online forums that when selecting a conveyancing lawyer they must be approved by your bank. This is my first house move but I have an AIP with Nat West Bank and I already have a family conveyancing lawyer in New Beckenham lined up. Will Nat West Bank require an approved conveyancer to be instructed? Does a list of approved conveyancers even exist for my conveyancing in New Beckenham?
You should use a solicitor that is on the Nat West Bank panel. Simply telephone your chosen New Beckenham conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the Nat West Bank panel. If they are not on the panel you have numerous alternatives open to you here:
- Carry on with your preferred New Beckenham conveyancing practitioner but Nat West Bank will need to retain a property lawyer on their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional charges and potential frustration.
- Choose a new conveyancing practitioner to conduct the conveyancing, not forgetting to check that they are on the Nat West Bank conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your property lawyer to apply to join the bank panel.
