I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must vacate my let out apartment in Rawcliffe by 18/5/2023. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in three weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into short term accommodation?

We are downsizing from our house in Rawcliffe and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Rawcliffe lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Rawcliffe. Having lived in Rawcliffe for 5 years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must 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 health insurance to cover that same illness)

My wife and I own a renovated Georgian house in Rawcliffe. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and National Westminster Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking National Westminster Bank to clarify?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Rawcliffe and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Rawcliffe before instructing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to grant a mortgage on such a home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Rawcliffe. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
