Me and my wife are acquiring a flat in Glenfield. My Conveyancer has never been on on the bank solicitor list. Am I still permitted to appoint my Glenfield conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You have numerous alternatives available to you here
- Carry on with your chosen Glenfield property lawyer but your lender will need to appoint a solicitor from their approved list. The net result is additional fees together with probable frustration.
- Appoint a new lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the lender conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your conveyancing practitioner to apply to join the mortgage company panel
It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Glenfield. Conveyancing lawyers have just been retained on the sale but I can't locate the title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they may still be with the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Glenfield relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
Are the BSA intent on creating a search tool with a view to list practices on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for example in Glenfield?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Glenfield is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Glenfield 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 Glenfield you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Glenfield 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.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Glenfield and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to provides protection to business leaseholders, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
