We were just about to sign contracts for a freehold house in Syston. We encountered a stumbling block. Our mortgage offer with Chelsea Building Society runs out on 26/11/2020 but the vendors are insisting on a completion date of 30/11/2020. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage expiry date?
The person best placed to address this issue is your lawyer who is in a position to assess whether they corresponding with the mortgage broker, seller’s lawyers, property agents or conceivably all parties taking into account the circumstances your house move to date.
Is it the case that all Syston solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be overseen by the CLC.
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Syston. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Syston on 12/8/2020, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Aldermore and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Syston concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Taking into account that I am about to spend 450k on a property in Syston I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer about myhome move ahead of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?
Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer due to be carrying out your conveyancing in Syston.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a case reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Syston should be the figure that you are charged.
One month into a sale of a flat in Syston. Conveyancing is fine but we are being charged a fortune by the landlord. So far we have paid £250 for a leasehold management information and then a further £134.40 for supplemental queries supplied by the buyers conveyancer.
Your conveyancing practitioner will not have any impact over the extent of the fee for this information but the average fee for the information for Syston leasehold property is £350. When it comes to Syston conveyancing deals it is conventional for the seller to cover the costs. The landlord or their agents are under no statutory obligation to answer such questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at high prices disproportionate to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. There is no prescriptive time frame by which they are obliged to provide answers.
