I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years built) in Dartmouth. 95% of the appartments are already occupied. Do I need carry out the local searches for my conveyancing in Dartmouth?
A big part of the Dartmouth conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. There are a large number of companies delivering Dartmouth conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are usually referred to as personal search companies due to them carrying out, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must secure their information from the local authority.
Are the Dartmouth conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Skipton conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Skipton?
Dartmouth conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Skipton directly.
What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Dartmouth?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Dartmouth is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Dartmouth are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dartmouth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dartmouth 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 residence.
