We are getting the release of further monies on our home loan from Santander as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Langford. Are we obliged to select a nearby Langford solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Santander don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander list.
Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Langford solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Langford surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I need some expedited conveyancing in Langford as I am faced with a deadline to sign on the dotted line inside 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?

Drawing on our experience of conveyancing in Langford the following are examples of what can crop up and adversely affect future mortgageability: Enforcement Actions, Outstanding Charges, Outstanding Grants, Railway Schemes,...
I am buying a new build flat in Langford. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Langford
Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
My mum and dad cant seem to find their Langford property on the HM Land Registry site. They recall that back in the 60’s when they purchased the house there were complications regarding Langford not being identified on some systems.
The vast majority of residences in Langford should show up. Have you endevoured to search to just the postcode. Ordinarily it will identify all the premises within the postcode. Assuming the property is registered it will show up with a title number. Where they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The property could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title documentation which may be with your parent’s lender.
