Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the RBS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Aldersgate?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
Will my lawyer be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Aldersgate.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Aldersgate. There are those who purchase a property in Aldersgate, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their lawyers which can figure out the risks in Aldersgate. The standard completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the seller to find out if the property has historically flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate response. The buyer’s conveyancers should also conduct an enviro search. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations should be conducted.
I have recentlyfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Aldersgate for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Aldersgate is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Aldersgate are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Aldersgate you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Aldersgate may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
