Me and my wife are buying residence in Enderby. My property lawyer has never been on on the lender conveyancing list. Is it possible for me to continue with my Enderby conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You must appoint a conveyancer to deal with the legal work required if you take out a loan to buy your home. They will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. One can select a Enderby property lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the solicitor appointed is not on the bank conveyancing panel further charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your lawyer has not historically applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.
It is a dozen years since I bought my house in Enderby. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Enderby relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.

What does commercial conveyancing in Enderby cover?
Commercial conveyancing in Enderby covers a broad array of advice, given by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises. For instance, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.
Is there a reason that Enderby conveyancing costs are higher for leasehold and freehold properties?
Inevitably there is increased work involved in leasehold conveyancing. Enderby has many leasehold properties. There is more paperwork involved in the purchase: for example, the lease and leasehold information (including up to date service charge, ground rent and buildings insurance details) obtained from the freeholder or managing agents. There are strict criteria that the lease must meet in order to be acceptable to a mortgage company. If it does not meet these requirements, the lease must be amended, which can involve additional expense for the seller.
