Every auction property should have a bespoke legal set of papers. This will likely include most,if not all of the documents that your solicitor requires.

I'm the sole recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Allestree. The Allestree property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

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 might be impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this provision primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I can not fathom if my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Allestree building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Allestree conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

As long as the lawyer is on the mortgage company panel, she or he must follow the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Allestree is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Allestree are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Allestree you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Allestree may ascertain 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 premises.

My conveyancer (who is 250 kilometers awayrequires that I execute a stat dec prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Allestree who can attest this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Allestree based
