I opted for a Gants Hill based solicitor for our conveyancing in Gants Hill recently. Going through the official terms of business it is apparent thatwe are responsible for charges even if the sale aborts. Should I go with them or choose an on-line conveyancing brokerage who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Gants Hill?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be higher to offset those conveyances that abort. Dont forget that these deals tend not to cover expenses for instance Gants Hill conveyancing search costs.
What happens if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Virgin Money Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Gants Hill?
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.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Gants Hill. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nationwide have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Nationwide your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nationwide. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Nationwide where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Gants Hill.

Your estate agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the property lawyers are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Aldermore or the financial adviser and complete any appropriate paperwork. Aldermore will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to get a mortgage offer. Aldermore will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Gants Hill.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Gants Hill is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Gants Hill are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Gants Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Gants Hill may determine 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 residence.
