I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must vacate my let out apartment in Cambourne by 11/1/2022. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Can I complete in three weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?

We decided to purchase a purpose built flat in Cambourne with a loan from Coventry Building Society.We would like to retain our Cambourne conveyancing practitioner but Coventry Building Society says she’s not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Coventry Building Society panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Coventry Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the Coventry Building Society approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Coventry Building Society

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Cambourne is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Cambourne are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cambourne you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cambourne may decide 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.

I have been Googling for Cambourne online conveyancing estimates. Can I be confident that all the Cambourne practices that are identified on your website are on the lender conveyancing panel?

The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices on our directory have assured us via an online form that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the bank panel. To date we have not been informed by either a bank or a member of the public that the data about a specific Cambourne conveyancing solicitor being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel is not accurate.
