What happens if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Bank of Ireland Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Buckden?
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.

We previously instructed conveyancing lawyers located in Buckden on the Aldermore solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further amount for handling the Aldermore mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Aldermore?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Aldermore but by your Buckden conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Aldermore panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Nationwide are being pedantic. The Buckden solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nationwide are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Buckden I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Buckden for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
