Please help. My Broadstairs conveyancer is informing me me that he is legally obliged toorder Broadstairs conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydsconveyancing panel. Is my lawyer correct?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Broadstairs conveyancing searches.
I am looking to buy a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Broadstairs who is on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

As long as the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be evidenced by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, find your property and secure up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.
Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Broadstairs before retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders will not grant a loan on such a premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Broadstairs. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Broadstairs and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to business leaseholders, giving them the a statutory right to apply to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
