My partner’s uncle is a conveyancing practitioner. I anticipate that I'll be able to get friends and family rates for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what level of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Hessle?
You should contrast pricing. Make use of our search tool on this site. The prices seem to vary but the service one can expect are distinct between property lawyers as is the case with the vast majority of professional services.
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Hessle for our house purchase. Our financial adviser has since notified us that our mortgage company Bank of Ireland won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?
Banks normally restrict either the type or the volume of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Typical examples of such criteria being that a firm must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have limited the number of solicitor practices they use to act for them. You should note that Bank of Ireland have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Bank of Ireland Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there remains mixed views regarding the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms, including some in or near Hessle only execute one or two conveyances a year.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Hessle I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hessle suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Hessle. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Hessle - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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.
