It is 10 years ago since I bought my house in Garstang. Conveyancing solicitors have just been instructed on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Garstang involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Should I be suspicious by third parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Garstang conveyancing company?
As is the case with many service providers, often input from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are many people with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all recommend solicitors to retain. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your preferred lawyer. Don't forget that the majority of lenders specify a panel list of law firms you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your transaction.
I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Garstang.Conveyancing has not commenced however I have just had a yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as usual as all rents and service invoices will be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
