I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Netherne. I have a mortgage offer with HSBC. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have 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.
I have a mortgage with HSBC for my property in Netherne. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform HSBC?
HSBC must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of HSBC’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact HSBC directly. You need not do this via a HSBC conveyancing panel lawyer.

My folks cant seem to find their Netherne land registry title on the website. They have a vague recollection back in the 60’s when they purchased the house there were complications with Netherne not being recognised in some systems.
Almost all properties in Netherne should be revealed. Have you limited your search with simply the postcode. Usually it will mention all the properties inside that postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The address might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title deeds which might be with your parent’s mortgage company.
