My IFA requires my Blackburn law firm’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have called my local Blackburn branch but they have not got back to me yet.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Blackburn lawyer . They keep a central record lender panel numbers.
Are the BSA planning on creating a searchable register to list practices on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Blackburn?
We would not expect to be advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to develop such a tool.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Blackburn is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Blackburn are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Blackburn you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Blackburn 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 residence.
Given that I am about to spend 450k on a two bedroom apartment in Blackburn I wish to talk to a solicitor about myhome move ahead of giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?
Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be doing your conveyancing in Blackburn.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a case number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Blackburn should be the figure that you end up paying.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Blackburn. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Blackburn - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I purchased a leasehold flat in Blackburn, conveyancing was carried out May 1997. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension?

You have 54 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as legals.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
