A selection of lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
Is there a list of RBS panel solicitors in Ryde on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings visible online.

The mortgage over my property is with Nottingham for my property in Ryde. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Nottingham?
Your original mortgage agreement with Nottingham will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nottingham will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nottingham directly. You need not do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel firm.

Do I need to be wary by brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Ryde conveyancing practice?
As with many service providers, often referrals from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all suggest conveyancers to instruct. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to appoint your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that most banks specify a panel list of law firms you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your transaction.

Back In 2004, I bought a leasehold house in Ryde. Conveyancing and Lloyds TSB Bank mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing solicitor in Ryde who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Ryde conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
I own a 2 bed flat in Ryde, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Ryde with an extended lease are worth £190,000.

You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
