My colleague advised me that if I am purchasing in Wymondham I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Wymondham Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Wymondham.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Wymondham before retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

Is it possible to switch firm as I need to choose a firm on the Nottingham Building Society conveyancing panel. I had appointed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Wymondham five minutes from me but she is not approved by Nottingham Building Society
It would be our pleasure to help you find a conveyancing solicitor in Wymondham on the Nottingham Building Society panel. Please note that the property lawyers that we on the directory do not pay us commission if you instruct them and are under regulation of the SRA who regulate all conveyancing solicitors in Wymondham.

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent has warned us that the owners will only move forward if we use their recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Wymondham
It is unlikely the owners are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the sellers directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Wymondham conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the bank conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the mortgage company approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the lender solicitor panel.
