I have 7378 less than 75 years remaining on my lease and require a lease extension for my apartment in New Southgate. Conveyancing solicitors on the Platform panel can deal with such extensions right?

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are obtaining a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Platform have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 17/1/2020 the requirements read as follows :

I have paid off my mortgage with Nottingham. I assume I don't need a New Southgate conveyancing practitioner on the Nottingham panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Nottingham mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Nottingham mortgage from the register. Nottingham, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Nottingham has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Nottingham has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Nottingham mortgage has been paid off.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Co-operative are being a right pain. The New Southgate solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a New Southgate conveyancer having checked that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your New Southgate postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in New Southgate.

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of hinderance in New Southgate conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
