I am hoping to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds. My intention is to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Shepshed. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel include conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Shepshed. The vast majority the appartments are already sold. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Shepshed?
You are putting yourself at risk in refusing to carrying out Shepshed conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would strongly advise in no uncertain terms that your lawyer conducts them. Where speed and price are top of your issues you should consider with your solicitor about the possibility of search insurance
The Shepshed conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my purchase in Shepshed have without warning shut down. I chose them because I had to have a firm on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel and my family Shepshed lawyer was not. I paid them money in advance. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.
I used Action Conveyancing several years past for my conveyancing in Shepshed. I now require my papers but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Shepshed. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Shepshed
Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply a car parking plan.
I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Shepshed. I've chance upon a web site which appears to be the perfect answer If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
