I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Mosborough. I have a mortgage agreed with Principality. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

I have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Mosborough. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Aldermore?
You must advise Aldermore before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Aldermore will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel lawyer.
Just bought a terraced house in Mosborough , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Mosborough conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my ownership is recorded.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Myself and my husband have just had an offer accepted on a property and had an appointment on Monday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to appointing a conveyancer that unless they are on their approved list of conveyancing practitioners then we will have to pay out a further charge of about two hundred pounds. This is because they will then have to instruct a solicitor to act on their behalf as well as the one we select on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their fees. I have asked the Post Office to furnish me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is their an easier way of going about this?
You can enquire of the Post Office what their panel criteria is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the conveyancing practitioner of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on mortgages for the Post Office historically. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with the Post Office. Alternatively please utilise our search facility and we may be able to identify a solicitor in Mosborough on the approved list for the Post Office.
