My husband and I are planning to acquire a 1 bedroom apartment in Newham with a mortgage. We have a Newham solicitor, however the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to use one of the bank panel solicitors or retain our Newham conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We feel that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’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 Newham conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
Can you recommend a Lloyds TSB Bank accepted Newham conveyancing conveyancer who can have us moved in within 10 days? Am I best advised to choose a high street Newham firm or an internet firm?

Mention your deadline together with the reasons and ask for a commitment on your deadline. Choose the one that you trust.

The deeds to my home are lost. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Newham 4 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?
Assuming the title is registered the details of your proprietorship will be held by HMLR under a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your house and obtain current copies of the property title for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for a small fee.
I am buying a new build flat in Newham. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Newham
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.
