When can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Lydiate and Melling and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Lydiate and Melling you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract simply enables the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Lydiate and Melling)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Is it the case that all Lydiate and Melling conveyancing solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

I am purchasing a property in Lydiate and Melling. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Leeds Building Society be concerned?
As your lender is Leeds Building Society your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Leeds Building Society. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Leeds Building Society where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Lydiate and Melling.
