Me and my wife are purchasing a ground floor flat in Oadby. My Solicitor has never been on on the lender conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to use my Oadby conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the bank approved list?
One must appoint a conveyancing practitioner to complete the legal work required if you need a loan to buy your home. They will carry out all the relevant investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in place. You may instruct a Oadby conveyancer of your choice. However, if the property lawyer appointed is not a member of the lender approved list supplemental charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so where your lawyer has not in the past applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.

I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Oadby for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Oadby conveyancing specialists.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Is it best to choose a Oadby conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can deal with the legal work but they are based over three hundred kilometers drive away.
The benefit of a high street Oadby conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Oadby know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and they were content that should surpass using an unknown Oadby conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Oadby based.
