When will exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Laceby and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Laceby you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. A signed contract is necessary for the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Laceby)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

We are unaware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
is it true that all Laceby solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Lloyds approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be overseen by the CLC.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Laceby. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. TSB have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is TSB your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to TSB where a lease does not comply with these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Laceby.
It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Laceby took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Laceby prior to retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may not give a mortgage on such a property.
