I'm the single beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Victoria Park. The Victoria Park property was put into my name in June. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. Most mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
My wife and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Aldermore as we want to conduct renovations to our property in Victoria Park. Do we need to choose a nearby Victoria Park solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Aldermore would not normally instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
I had an offer accepted on a house in Victoria Park on 2/6/2021, valuation was booked 2 days later, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading response. The buyer’s lawyers should also commission an environmental report. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be conducted.
