We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Walton Le Dale for our home move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage company Santander won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Mortgage Companies ordinarily imposes restrictions either the type or the amount of conveyancing practices on their panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have reduced the amount of solicitor practices they use to act for them. Be aware that Santander have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Santander Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there are mixed opinions regarding the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud.

How does conveyancing in Walton Le Dale differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Walton Le Dale approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Walton Le Dale usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Walton Le Dale or who has acted in the same development.
My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent told us that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Walton Le Dale
We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your own,trusted Walton Le Dale conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will provide their estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing targets set by senior management.
We own a leasehold flat in Walton Le Dale. Conveyancing was finished in 21012. I have heard that I mustn’t let the the remaining lease term to get too low. Why is that a problem?
Walton Le Dale leasehold properties are for a set period - often ninety nine years when they are first granted. However a significant appartments in Walton Le Dale were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so these leases now have fewer than eighty years left to run. That may sound like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies generally require leases to have at least seventy five years left to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing 75 years. To maximise your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. There are also significant benefits to taking action before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease is below eighty years the amount to be paid to extend starts to escalate.
