I can't travel far from Newbury Park. What is the rationale as to why all Newbury Park solicitors aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?
A decade ago most lenders exhibited an approach to risk which is different than today. The FSA in 2010 conducted a thematic review into property fraud which concluded: know the conveyancing practitioners on your panel. Consequently, lenders have since looked to extract more information from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Hundreds of firms have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible satisfy the minimum amount of transactions the lenders set.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Newbury Park I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Newbury Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign 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 solicitor regarding this matter.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Newbury Park. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Newbury Park - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
