My husband and I intend to purchase a newbuild apartment in Rusholme with a residential mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We like our Rusholme conveyancing lawyer but The Royal Bank of Scotland advised that his firm is not on their approved list of member firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that The Royal Bank of Scotland use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers will be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

How does conveyancing in Rusholme differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Rusholme contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Rusholme usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Rusholme or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Rusholme I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rusholme in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
