My apartment in New Cross is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does my property lawyer need to be required to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Clydesdale 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 requirements fairly frequently in recent years.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in New Cross. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?
Given that you are now for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to appoint a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of priority as you now have a pending a drop dead date to complete the property. Every auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction set of papers. This should include most,if not all of the paperwork that your conveyancer will need. In the case of leasehold premises the auction pack should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation relating to a leasehold property. You need to pass this on to the solicitor instructed by you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds in place to complete on the on the contractual date .

I had an offer accepted on an apartment in New Cross on 29/11/2019, valuation was booked 4 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Are Lloyds entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My partner and I are selling our home in New Cross and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in New Cross. We have lived in New Cross for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
My wife and I have a terraced Victorian property in New Cross. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in New Cross and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
