Can you help? My Coalville lawyer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toorder Coalville conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Nat Westsolicitor panel. Is my lawyer right?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Coalville conveyancing searches.
It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Coalville. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Coalville relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Coalville is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Coalville are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Coalville you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Coalville may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
