Our Messingham conveyancer has uncovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor has advised that he is duty bound to check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
Me and my partner are purchasing a flat in Messingham. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to put our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?

When it comes to conveyancing in Messingham obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always suggest that you speak with the lawyer handling your transaction.
My wife and I are spending time viewing flats in Messingham and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancing practitioner appointed at this point? I am planning to take a mortgage with Lloyds.
It would be sensible to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Lloyds, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
I purchased my flat on 2 June and the transaction details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Messingham expressed confidence that it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Messingham particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Messingham is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the buyer is living at the premises so 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
I have just appointed agents to market my garden apartment in Messingham. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?
It best that you discharge the service charge as usual as all rents and service payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
