We previously chose conveyancers with offices in Ravenscourt Park on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further sum for handling the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer may levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Ravenscourt Park conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I can not work out if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Ravenscourt Park building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Ravenscourt Park conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the conveyancer is on the bank approved list, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I am attracted to a two maisonettes in Ravenscourt Park both have approximately 50 years remaining on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are plenty of short leases in Ravenscourt Park. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. For this reason it is generally wise to extend the lease term.

We recommend you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
