Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Bedworth. Can you please explain the reason why all Bedworth property lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It led to mortgage companies pruning less reputable firms from their official list of approved conveyancing practitioners .
I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my rented apartment in Bedworth by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Is it possible to complete in three weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into temporary accommodation?
The normal practice is not to provide notice on a rental until exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and urge them to they seek the assistance the owners side, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will look towards

I am due to move home in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Bedworth. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this website.

You will need to inform the removal company that they can start moving you in.

I am buying a detached bungalow in Bedworth. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your property lawyer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Bedworth will sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of works or require the permission of another owner. Some additions require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Bedworth bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Bedworth conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Your lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
