Some advice if I may. My Upney conveyancer is informing me me that he is legally obliged toapply for Upney conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Santanderconveyancing panel. Do I not have any say here?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Upney conveyancing searches.

We were going to get a AIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Upney solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Upney solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
How does conveyancing in Upney differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Upney come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Upney typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Upney or who has acted in the same development.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Upney. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Upney who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?
First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to incur the fees of a Upney conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
