We previously selected solicitors with offices in Harold Wood on the Nottingham solicitor panel. They are now charging me a supplemental charge for the legal aspects of the Nottingham mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nottingham?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Nottingham but by your Harold Wood property lawyer. Some firms on the Nottingham panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

I bought my house on 10 June and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Harold Wood advises it should be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Harold Wood particularly slow to register?

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Harold Wood. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Harold Wood - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
