Can I be sure that the Heanor conveyancing solicitor on the Coventry BS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Heanor obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your conveyancing.
Intending to buy a house in Heanor. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Heanor solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
Our offer on a semi in Heanor has been accepted, the vendors do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Heanor. What do I do now?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Heanor conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers will apply for a home loan with Santander and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Heanor.
My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Heanor. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Accord Mortgages Ltd to clarify?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Heanor and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Any property lawyer listed on a lender approved list is required to advise the lender of any changes to the purchase amount. In the event that you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the reduction to your lender then they would have no choice but to refrain from acting for you and the bank.
