I hired a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Shooter's Hill recently. Looking through the Terms I noteI am on the hook for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select an on-line lawyer advertising no completion no cost conveyancing in Shooter's Hill?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to offset the cases that do not go ahead. You should be mindful that such schemes tend not to protect you from disbursements e.g. Shooter's Hill conveyancing search charges.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Shooter's Hill conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel?
Shooter's Hill conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Skipton directly.

Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Shooter's Hill I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Shooter's Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

As long as no conflict arises this is permitted. Where you are requiring a mortgage then the bank may have a say as many banks have specific instructions on this. For example for Leeds Building Society as of 15/2/2024, the requirements read as follows :
• a different person deals with the conveyance (i.e. not the borrower);
• there is no conflict of interest and none arises during the transaction; and
• the Law Society guidelines are followed.
