My Conveyancer in Stony Stratford is not on the Chelsea Building Society Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Chelsea Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your existing Stony Stratford lawyers but Chelsea Building Society will need to use a conveyancer on their panel. This will inevitably rack up the total conveyancing charges and result in delays.
- Choose a new practitioner to act in the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are on the Chelsea Building Society panel
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Stony Stratford is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Stony Stratford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stony Stratford may ascertain 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.

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Stony Stratford. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance payments should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
