It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Blackley. Conveyancing solicitors have just been instructed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they may still be with the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Blackley relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
I am buying a semi-detached house in Blackley. Conveyancing solicitors are said to be ‘a necessary evil’ but can I do it myself?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Blackley you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests.

Now that you have exchanged you now have to choose a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of priority as you are faced with a pending a fixed date to complete the purchase. All auction property will have a corresponding legal pack. This will include most,if not all of the documents that your conveyancer requires.

I am due to move home in November. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Blackley. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from the estate agent however this should only occur once the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can help you choose a conveyancing in Blackley or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Blackley.
My offer was accepted on a house in Blackley on 11/8/2021, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Bank of Ireland and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Blackley is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Blackley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Blackley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Blackley may determine 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 property.
I am a fortnight into a leasehold purchase having been referred to a firm by the estate agent to handle our conveyancing in Blackley. I am not happy. Can you help me find new conveyancers?
A conveyancer would have to be very poor in order to consider changing them. Has your mortgage been sent? If so you will need to advise them of the replacement solicitor and get the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added charges and frustration. That should be your first question of the new solicitors.
