I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my rented property in Fleetwood by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. Is it possible to complete in six weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
The normal practice is not to give notice on a rental unless your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not previously done so, contact to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the owners lawyers, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will work to achieve
My relative recommended that where I am purchasing in Fleetwood I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is sometimes included in the estimate for your Fleetwood conveyancing searches.

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Fleetwood Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Fleetwood Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Fleetwood.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Fleetwood is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Fleetwood are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Fleetwood 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 Fleetwood may decide 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.
Our estate agent has suggested using their conveyancing practitioner for the conveyancing in Fleetwood - Surely it’s better to just use them?
This is not necessarily the case and you are free to instruct whichever solicitor you prefer for your Fleetwood home move. The property lawyer put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not always be the right conveyancer, they may suggest their own conveyancing firm who are based far away. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancing practitioner and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain updates.
