I am considering refinancing my property in Whimple, does my lawyer have to be on the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, but Coventry BS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

We are planning on selling our home in Whimple and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Whimple. We have lived in Whimple for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

I purchased my house on 7 April and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Whimple expressed confidence that it will be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Whimple uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Whimple registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Whimple is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Whimple are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whimple you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whimple may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.

I am intending to sublet my leasehold flat in Whimple. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?

Even though your previous Whimple conveyancing solicitor is not available you can check your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the premises. The accepted inference is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you must seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person in advance of subletting. The net result is you not allowed to sublet in the absence of prior permission. The consent is not allowed to be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.
