I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Pewsey. The vast majority the properties have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Pewsey?
Conveyancing Searches are a vital link in the Pewsey conveyancing process. There are hundreds search providers delivering Pewsey conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are usually referred to as personal search organisation and they produce, not surprisingly, personal searches. Nevertheless, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their information from the local authority.

If you plan to refinance then Nottingham will insist on your using a conveyancer on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Nottingham mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of hinderance in Pewsey conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

I'm remortgaging a flat in Pewsey. I have found my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't find my lawyer's name on the list. Is this a big problem?
Not all staff in the company must be listed by the regulator. Provided there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unlicensed staff.
