It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Hetton Le Hole. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be retained by the lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Hetton Le Hole involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the HSBC Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Hetton Le Hole?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
I am the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Hetton Le Hole. The Hetton Le Hole property was put into my name in November. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. many lenders would take a sensible view as this requirement principally exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Hetton Le Hole building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Hetton Le Hole conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the lender panel, they must follow the CML Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
