Some advice if I may. My Ramsbottom solicitor is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Ramsbottom conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Ramsbottom conveyancing searches.

The deeds to our property can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Ramsbottom 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware exactly where to find all the suitable paperwork so you may buy or dispose of your property without a hitch. Where duplicates are not available, your conveyancer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the property.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial offices in Ramsbottom and how can you help?

There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated.

The benefit of a local Ramsbottom conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and they were content that should trump using an unknown Ramsbottom conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.
