You are on the wrong site if you are seeking the cheapest conveyancing in Dunstable. Our aim is to provide excellent value conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a Dunstable based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the the probability is that allocate you one of their panel conveyancers where you take up the "fee-free" deal. Contact the bank to determine if they allow a monetary alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Dunstable.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Dunstable is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Dunstable are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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 have recently realised that I have 72 years remaining on my lease in Dunstable. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is missing. What options are available to me?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to track down the landlord.
