What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Lydney
There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Lydney and Solicitor firms in Lydney offering conveyancing We would stress that the two are regulated professionals specialising in the legal work in the home buying process. Both can conduct other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, enfranchisement and transfer of equity conveyancing.
We are planning to move home in February. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Lydney. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your page.

You should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Lydney or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Lydney.
I have instructed a Lydney solicitor having checked that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Lydney postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Lydney.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Lydney ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of property.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Lydney. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Lydney to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
