I am thinking of remortgaging my apartment in Heacham, does my lawyer have to be on the Lloyds Conveyancing panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, but Lloyds would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

I moved into my apartment on 9 March and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Heacham said it will be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Heacham particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Heacham registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any interested persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Heacham is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
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 must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Heacham may determine 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 premises.
