We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a Biddulph based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel conveyancers where you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the mortgage company to see if they make available a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Biddulph.
I have recentlybecome aware that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Biddulph for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Biddulph?
Biddulph conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not involves the purchaser’s solicitor sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer such questions the majority will be willing to do so. They are at liberty to invoice a reasonable charge for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it is above £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration fees, without which the charge is technically not due. In reality one has no option but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
