I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to instruct a Gospel Oak based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the the likelihood is that give you one of their panel conveyancers if you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Call the mortgage company and ask if they make available a monetary alternative.

I have todaybeen informed that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Gospel Oak for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Gospel Oak conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Gospel Oak is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Gospel Oak are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Gospel Oak you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Gospel Oak 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 property.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Gospel Oak conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

Me and my wife have recently had an offer accepted on our 1st home in Gospel Oak, and need to get solicitors instructed. We have used the numerous rating tools and the results are from all over the the UK. Is it advisable to have a Gospel Oak conveyancing practitioner local to our prospective new home? I am willing to do all the communicating electronically, but I assume at some stage we will need to physically go into the conveyancing practitioner's office to sign documents?
Usually there is no need to physically visit the office of your property lawyer, they can post any relevant documents to you, which you can sign and send back. Many home movers nevertheless opt to use a locally based solicitor, but it is not a prerequisite for conveyancing in Gospel Oak.
