I am hoping to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds. I would like to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Settle. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

I am selling our house in Settle and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two maisonettes in Settle both have in the region of forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?

A lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
