My IFA has requested my Bootle lawyer’ panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Bootle office but they cant find it on their system.
Have you tried calling your Bootle property lawyer about this?. Most Bootle law practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
Having sold my house in Bootle last April but the buyer keeps e-mailing me to say his conveyancer needs to hear from mylawyer. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Following your disposal your solicitor is duty bound to deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the buyers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities specific conveyancing in Bootle.
Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Bootle?
First, 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 for a fee.

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Bootle.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property can not be found. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Bootle 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor should be aware precisely where to find all the appropriate documentation so you may buy or dispose of your property without any difficulty. If duplicates are not available, your lawyer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the property.
