I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must leave my rented apartment in Frizington by 28/3/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Can I complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?
Generally one should not provide notice for your letting unless exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your lawyer and request that they chase the sellers solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will look to achieve
I am selling our home in Frizington and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Frizington. We have lived in Frizington for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. 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 illness)
I used Stirling Law several years past for my conveyancing in Frizington. Now, I need my files but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

Am I right to be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Frizington conveyancing company?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often referrals from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are numerous parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may recommend conveyancers to appoint. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to appoint your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your home move.
We are 14 days into a freehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Frizington. I am am starting to be dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you help me find new lawyers?
A lawyer would have to be very bad in order to consider changing them. Has the mortgage offer been sent? In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the replacement lawyer and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new conveyancer needs to be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and delays. That should be your first question of the new lawyers.
