I was notified yesterday by my financial adviser that my Burton Latimer the law firm I have appointed is not on the lender Solicitor panel. How can I be certain whether this is indeed the case?
The first thing you need to do is to contact your Burton Latimer lawyer directly. You lawyer should advise you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Burton Latimer conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.
Please help. My Burton Latimer solicitor is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Burton Latimer conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santanderconveyancing panel. These Burton Latimer searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Burton Latimer conveyancing searches.
We hope to to buy with Earl Shilton BS. We have called around locally but cant to find a Burton Latimer conveyancing firm on the Earl Shilton BS panel. Can you assist?

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Burton Latimer and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Burton Latimer. We have lived in Burton Latimer for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Just acquired a terraced house in Burton Latimer , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my title? My Burton Latimer conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the registration is concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Burton Latimer registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Burton Latimer I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Burton Latimer in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
