My fiance and I are hoping to buy a 1 bedroom flat in Walworth with a residential mortgage from National Westminster Bank.We have a Walworth conveyancing practitioner but National Westminster Bank advised that she’s not listed on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a National Westminster Bank panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that National Westminster Bank use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the National Westminster Bank solicitor panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for National Westminster Bank

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Walworth I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Walworth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
