I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Sipson for our house move. Our financial adviser has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Aldermore won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Pre- 2008 most banks had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Sipson conveyancing firms would have been on most mortgage company panels. The financial services regulator in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies have regularly sought more data from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum number of conveyancing. Many Sipson conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Sipson is one of the thousands of areas where the solicitors showing on our search results are on the panel for Aldermore.

Now that you are exchanged you must appoint a conveyancing solicitor quickly as you are faced with a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the purchase.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Sipson building society branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Sipson conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the lawyer is on the bank approved list, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
