Much to our surprise we have been told by our financial adviser that my Hampden Pk the law firm I have appointed is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. How can I be sure whether this is correct?
You need to contact your Hampden Pk lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Hampden Pk conveyancing practice that is on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
We are downsizing from our house in Hampden Pk and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Hampden Pk conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hampden Pk. We have lived in Hampden Pk for three years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)
The deeds to my property can not be found. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Hampden Pk 4 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

Where duplicates are not available, your lawyer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your property.

I wish to let out my leasehold flat in Hampden Pk. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Some leases for properties in Hampden Pk do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Hampden Pk - Sample of Queries before buying
This question is helpful as a) areas can result in problems for the building as the common areas may start to deteriorate where services remain unpaid b) if the leaseholders have a dispute with the managing agents you will need to have complete disclosure It would be sensible to find out as much as possible about the company managing the building as they can either make your living at the property much easier or problematic. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to daily matters such as the tidiness of the communal areas. Enquire of other tenants if they are happy with them. On a final note, be sure you understand the dates that the service fees are due to the managing agents and specifically what it includes. Are there any major works anticipated that could add a premium to the maintenance charges?
