My husband and I are hoping to acquire a flat in North End and are in fact using a North End conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our property lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Clydesdale have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our North End lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Please explain?
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred North End lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

Do I have to pop into the offices of the solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in North End so that I can pop in to their offices when needed.
Nowadays conveyancing panel lawyers for banks undertake their work via the post, e-mail or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the legal work for your home move regardless of where you live in England or Wales. That being said you should see if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in North End
Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. 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. 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. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in North End. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is registered - and most are in North End - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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.
