Me and my partner are acquiring property in Markfield. My Conveyancer is not on the mortgage company approved panel. Is it possible for me to appoint my Markfield conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
You have a number of choices available to you here
- Proceed with your chosen Markfield conveyancer but your lender will undoubtedly instruct a conveyancer on their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional fees together with potential delay.
- Appoint a fresh property lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Convince your property lawyer to pull out all the stops to join the lender’s conveyancing panel

I have been told that property searches are a common reason for stalling in Markfield conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Markfield.
The deeds to our property are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Markfield 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your solicitor will know exactly where to locate all the suitable paperwork so you can purchase or sell your property without a hitch. Where copies are not available, your solicitor may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the property.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial offices in Markfield and how can you help?

There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex.
