It is unwise to give notice for your tenancy until you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, notify to your conveyancer and ask them to they cajole the owners solicitors, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will look to achieve

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Tenterden?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. 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.

We are buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Tenterden. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will legal investigations on the property involve enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are allowed?

Your solicitor should review the deeds as conveyancing in Tenterden can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of works or necessitated the consent of another owner. Certain extensions call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Tenterden. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement is principally there to pick up on subsales or the flipping of properties.
