I am obtaining a mortgage offer from Nat West. I would like to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Shoeburyness. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel include Licensed Conveyancers?
The Nat West approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Shoeburyness so that I can attend their offices if necessary.
These days approved lawyers for mortgage companies carry out all of the work through the post, e-mail or over the phone. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in the country. That being said you should check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.
Will our conveyancer be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Shoeburyness.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Shoeburyness. Plenty of people will purchase a house in Shoeburyness, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Shoeburyness. The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the vendor to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate response. The purchaser’s lawyers will also order an enviro report. This will higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be carried out.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Shoeburyness is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
