I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel lawyer as I would much rather appoint a high street conveyancing solicitor in Rothley?
You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers should you take up the "fee-free" offer. Contact the lender and see if they allow a cash alternative. Some lenders have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Rothley.
is it true that all Rothley solicitor practices on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Rothley. I have a mortgage agreed with HSBC. 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?

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Rothley. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office.

However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
Should my lawyer be making enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Rothley.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Rothley.

The buyer’s solicitors will also order an enviro search. This will indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be conducted.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only Fifty years remaining on my flat in Rothley. I am keen to extend my lease but my landlord is can not be found. What should I do?
On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice.
