We are selling our apartment in Kings Heath. Will the lawyer have to be required to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.
There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Kings Heath but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Kings Heath conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Is there a list of Coventry BS panel conveyancers in Kings Heath on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

I had an offer accepted on a property in Kings Heath on 28/5/2019, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Kings Heath 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number.

Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Kings Heath. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as normal because all ground rent and service payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
