We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Lake?
You should check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel lawyers should you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender to ask if they offer you a cash alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Lake.

We are planning to move house in February. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Lake. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across this page.
On the day of completion you can collect the keys from your estate agent however this can only be done when the previous owners conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you can tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Lake or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Lake.
I am purchasing a 3 bedroom semi in Lake. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will legal work on the property involve investigations to see if these alterations are allowed?
Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Lake can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of changes or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Certain works call for local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
I am downsizing from our home in Lake and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Lake. We have lived in Lake for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)

I am a fortnight into a residential purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the selling agent to execute conveyancing in Lake. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
They would have to be very bad to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? If so you need to advise them of the new lawyer and have the mortgage documents are re-issued. The conveyancer needs to be on the lenders panel to avoid escalating costs and delays. That should be your starting point.
