My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Shepherd's Bush. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?
Now that you are for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to appoint a conveyancing solicitor soon as you are faced with a pending deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. An auction property will ordinarily have an associated legal pack. This should include most,if not all of the paperwork that your conveyancer requires. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the legal papers may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork pertinent to a leasehold property. You should pass this on to the solicitor instructed by you at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
I am buying a property in Shepherd's Bush. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Bank of Ireland have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Bank of Ireland your lawyer must follow the formal instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Bank of Ireland. The CML Handbook sets out minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease does not meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Shepherd's Bush.

I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Shepherd's Bush conveyancer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Shepherd's Bush is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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 residence.
