My flat in Mayfield is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will the lawyer have to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.
We are purchasing a detached bungalow in Mayfield. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these alterations are permitted?
Your property lawyer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Mayfield can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of alterations or require the permission of a 3rd party. Certain works require local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
My lawyer has informed me that defective lease insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Mayfield conveyancing?

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Mayfield off the council. I have a mortgage offer with HSBC. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Mayfield differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Mayfield come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Mayfield typically buy the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Mayfield or who has acted in the same development.
