Can I be sure that the Tibshelf conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Tibshelf obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor handling your transaction.
My partner and I are spending time looking at flats in Tibshelf and I am about to put in an offer. Is it sensible to have my conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with RBS.
It would be prudent to commence your search sooner rather than later.

I have a mortgage with HSBC for my property in Tibshelf. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform HSBC?
HSBC must be informed of your intention before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of HSBC’s mortgage conditions. It may be that HSBC will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact HSBC directly. You need not do this via a HSBC conveyancing panel firm.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Tibshelf is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Tibshelf are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tibshelf you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tibshelf may determine 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 residence.
I have recently realised that I have Seventy years left on my lease in Tibshelf. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is absent. What are my options?
On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have done all that could be expected to locate the lessor. In some cases an enquiry agent would be useful to try and locate and prepare an expert document which can be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Tibshelf.
