I am thinking of refinancing my flat in Eccles, does my lawyer need to be on the Co-operative Conveyancing panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, but Co-operative would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
We are planning on selling our property in Eccles and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Eccles lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Eccles. Having lived in Eccles for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

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. Eccles is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Eccles are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Eccles you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Eccles 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 premises.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Eccles. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Eccles - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
