As a novice what is the most important advice you can give me concerning purchase conveyancing in Ruislip?
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Ruislip or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the seller, estate agent and sometimes the bank. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Ruislip is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a potential adversary will attempt to convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is against your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
What happens if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Skipton Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Ruislip?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Ruislip is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Ruislip are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ruislip you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ruislip may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.
