What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Fleetwood?
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 at a cost.

How does conveyancing in Fleetwood differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Fleetwood come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Fleetwood usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Fleetwood or who has acted in the same development.

HMLR as a matter of law obliged to reveal price sold data on a register of the title for domestic properties countrywide including properties in Fleetwood. The register of title is a public document, so HMLR would be breaching their statutory obligations if they failed to allow access to the register.
In essence you can make a request of the Land Registry to hide the amount paid entry but the answer would be a No.
