Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the RBS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Bolsover?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. 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 at a cost.

Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Bolsover solicitor - who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Bolsover surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Bolsover prior to appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders may not issue a loan on a flying freehold home.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bolsover. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Bolsover from the perspective of expediting the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Bolsover can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers as soon as your agents start marketing the property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ solicitors. A minority of Bolsover leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. The majority of freeholders or Management Companies in Bolsover charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should find out the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought on or before finding a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most frequent reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Bolsover. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s permission? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Bolsover state that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord consenting to such works. Should you dont have the paperwork to hand do not communicate with the landlord without checking with your lawyer first.
