I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Clydesdale will not permit this. Should they have been approached?

The solicitor being on the Clydesdale approved list is obliged to advise Clydesdale of any variations to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you.

Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Seaton. My lender is Chelsea Building Society

Having exchanged you will need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor soon as you are facing a pending a fixed date to complete the conveyancing. All auction property should have an associated auction pack. This should include evidence of title and search results. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the legal pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Seaton building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Seaton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

As long as the property lawyer is on the lender panel, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the bank. 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

About to purchase flat in Seaton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

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 Seaton property lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
