It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Co-operative, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Crouch End. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £200. Soon after, the property lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

I am selling our home in Crouch End and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Crouch End. We have lived in Crouch End for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR under a Title Number.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Crouch End is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Crouch End you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.
