I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to leave my let out flat in Kibworth Beauchamp by 7/2/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into temporary accommodation?
Generally one should not provide notice for your letting unless you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, update to your solicitor and request that they chase the sellers lawyers, try to an acceptable time-line that all parties will work towards
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is expelled from the Leeds Building Society Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Kibworth Beauchamp?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. 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 for a fee.
