What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Rainham?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I own a leasehold flat in Rainham. Conveyancing was finalised in 2009. I have been told that I mustn’t allow the lease length get too short. What is the reasoning?
Rainham residential long term leases are for a fixed period - often just under one hundred years when they are first granted. However a significant appartments in Rainham were constructed or converted 20 or more years ago and so these leases now have under 80 years unexpired. This may seem like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies tend to need leases to have at least 75 years remaining to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are getting close to 75 years. To optimize your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. There are also significant benefits to doing so before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease is below 80 years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to increase.
