It has come to my attention via my mortgage adviser that my Aintree solicitor is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain that this is indeed the case?
The best course of action for you to take is to call your Aintree lawyer directly. You lawyer should advise you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Aintree conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.
A colleague suggested that if I am buying in Aintree I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Aintree concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Me and my partner are soon to complete on the purchase a house in Aintree but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have agreed reparation from the current proprietors of four thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process yet my lender will not permit this. Should they have been involved?
The conveyancer listed on a mortgage company conveyancing panel is required to disclose to the lender of any changes to the purchase price. If you did not allow your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to your mortgage company then they would need to discontinue representing you and the lender.
