The fact that your lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

Your property lawyer will check the registered title as conveyancing in Shillington will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain changes or require the consent of a 3rd party. Certain extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations.

I am the only recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Shillington. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation principally exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

I can't really find anything else in Shillington in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

New build sellers have put forward a solicitor and I've obtained a quote from them. It's almost three hundred pounds cheaper than my local Shillington lawyer. Should I use them?

Developers frequently have lists of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the builder's contract and conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of developers offer an inducement to choose their approved property lawyer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a developer will not suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they require an exchange inside a month. The argument for not opting for the suggested lawyer is that they may be hesitant to 'push' your interests for fear of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should stick with your local Shillington conveyancer.
