Me and my fiance are purchasing a flat in Partington. My lawyer is not on the mortgage company solicitor list. Can I still continue with my Partington conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the lender panel?
You have numerous options available to you here
- Carry on with your existing Partington conveyancing practitioner but your bank will need to appoint a property lawyer on their approved panel. This will result in additional fees together with potential interruption.
- Appoint a new conveyancing practitioner to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to seek to join the lender panel

We are planning to move house in March. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Partington. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from the selling agent but this should only take place once the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. You can tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Partington or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Partington.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Partington. I have a mortgage agreed with Barclays. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use 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. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Partington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Partington is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Partington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Partington you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Partington may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.
