You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out The Ridgeway conveyancing searches.

My apartment in The Ridgeway is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does the solicitor need to be required to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.

I am purchasing my first flat in The Ridgeway benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not inform my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Nationwide Building Society. Is this normal?.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in The Ridgeway I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in The Ridgeway in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
