I was advised recently by my mortgage adviser that my Boston the law firm I have appointed is not on the lender Solicitor panel. How can I be sure if this is correct?
You need to contact your Boston lawyer directly. You lawyer should inform you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.
Can you vouch for a Aldermore accepted Boston conveyancing conveyancer that can complete within 10 days? Would it be better to use a local Boston practice or a nationwide conveyancer?

Approach some well established law practices and ask to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a fee estimate. Explain your time frames together with your reasons and ask for an assurance on your deadline. Choose the one that you are most comfortable with.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Boston I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Boston for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
How simple is it to use the search app to find a conveyancing solicitor in Boston on the authorised to act for my mortgage?
1st pick a mortgage company such as Barclays , Norwich and Peterborough Building Society or Godiva Mortgages Ltd then specify your location e.g. Boston. Conveyancing practices in Boston and beyond will then be shown.
Should I use a Boston conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can carry out the legal formalities however her office is approximately 350miles away.
The benefit of a local Boston conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and in the main were happy that must trump using an unfamiliar Boston conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
