My IFA has requested my Long Eaton law firm’s panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have e-mailed my local Long Eaton office but they have not got back to me yet.

I am considering applying for a Aldermore mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Long Eaton with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, but Aldermore would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I moved into my house on 2 January and the transaction details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Long Eaton said it would be dealt with in less than a month. Are titles in Long Eaton uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Long Eaton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the premises thus post completion formalities is not always primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
How does conveyancing in Long Eaton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Long Eaton contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Long Eaton tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Long Eaton or who has acted in the same development.
My father-in-law has recommend that I use his conveyancers in Long Eaton. Should I find my own property lawyer?

Last February I purchased a leasehold house in Long Eaton. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
