I was advised today by my estate agent that my Bilborough the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. How can I check?
The first thing you need to do is to contact your Bilborough lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.

I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Bilborough for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bilborough conveyancing specialists.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business premises in Bilborough and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to business lessees, giving them the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Bilborough is one of the numerous locations in which the firms we work with are based
Our property lawyer in Bilborough has informed me that he requires proof of ID documents saying that this forms part of his obligations as a solicitor on the lender Conveyancing panel. Can this be correct?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the mortgage company. This is not unique to conveyancing in Bilborough
