What happens if my solicitor is removed from the Yorkshire BS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Falconwood?
The first thing to point out is that, 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 at a cost.
I am intent on selling our property in Falconwood and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Falconwood. We have lived in Falconwood for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must 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)
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Falconwood and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides protection to business tenants, giving them the legal entitlement to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act for protection and help with commercial conveyancing in Falconwood
As co-executor for the will of my grandfather I am disposing of a property in Newport but live in Falconwood. My conveyancer (based 200 miles awayrequires that I execute a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Falconwood who can attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Falconwood
