Recently asked questions about conveyancing in St Margarets

Some advice if I may. My St Margarets solicitor is assuring me that he is legally obliged toconduct St Margarets conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. These St Margarets checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a home loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out St Margarets conveyancing searches.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Yorkshire BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in St Margarets?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in St Margarets I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in St Margarets in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign 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 lawyer concerning this.
