Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home moving as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Page Green. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Page Green?

Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home.

I'm the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Page Green. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. Most banks would take a sensible view as this clause is principally there to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Page Green. I have a mortgage offer with Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing is new to me. 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 Leeds Building Society, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
We are downsizing from our property in Page Green and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Page Green lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Page Green. Having lived in Page Green for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)
