What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Heacham?
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Heacham or throughout Norfolk is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, property agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Heacham is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the process whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a potential adversary may try and persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

is it true that all Heacham conveyancing solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
How can we know in advance if a Heacham conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Heacham seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always suggest that you speak with the lawyer handling your conveyancing.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Heacham is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Heacham are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Heacham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Heacham may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Heacham. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Heacham - 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.
