Me and my partner are buying a 3 bedroom apartment in Parkstone with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Parkstone conveyancer, however the bank says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel solicitors or keep our Parkstone solicitor and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We feel that this is inequitable; are we not able to require that the mortgage company use our Parkstone conveyancer ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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. A further alternative is for your Parkstone conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Parkstone. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Parkstone property lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden apartment in Parkstone. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
