I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Ovingham. I have a mortgage offer with RBS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

Our offer on a detached house in Ovingham has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Ovingham. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Santander?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Ovingham conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your property lawyer is on the Santander approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers will apply for a home loan with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Ovingham.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Ovingham. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Ovingham - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
