It is 10 years ago since I bought my home in North Cornelly. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I can't find the title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in North Cornelly involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

How does conveyancing in North Cornelly differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in North Cornelly approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in North Cornelly usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in North Cornelly or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are purchasing a first floor flat in North Cornelly. At the point of instructing our conveyancing practitioner, they said that they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. The mortgage broker contacted us today to advise that they are not on the Nationwide approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Should we just choose a new property lawyer that is on their approved list or should we cover the costs for dual representation, with Nationwide selecting their own approved solicitor.
When acquiring a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is normal for the buyer’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the solicitor has to fulfill. Some banks now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should call Nationwide to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Nationwide's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own North Cornelly solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
