I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to leave my rented property in Belper by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
Generally one should not serve notice for your tenancy until your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not previously done so, notify to your conveyancer and request that they chase the sellers side, try to a target completion date that all parties will work towards
What is the optimum way to discover of the solicitor conducting my conveyancing in Belper is on the lender’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Lloyds TSB Bank thus spending £175.00 in further conveyancing costs.

The deeds to our house are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Belper 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
As long as the title is registered the details of your proprietorship will be retained by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Belper is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Belper are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Belper you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Belper may decide 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 residence.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Belper. I happened to chance upon a web site which looks to be the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via web that would be preferable. Should I be wary? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
