We are purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Cotswolds who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Cotswolds.
We are intent on selling our house in Cotswolds and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Cotswolds lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Cotswolds. We have lived in Cotswolds for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Cotswolds is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Cotswolds are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Cotswolds you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cotswolds 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.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business offices in Cotswolds and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to gives a safeguard to commercial tenants, granting the right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act for protection and assist with commercial conveyancing in Cotswolds
I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the bank approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the mortgage company solicitor panel.
