We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a Alvaston based conveyancing firm?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Alvaston is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Alvaston are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

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 premises.
Do I need to be suspicious that estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Alvaston conveyancing practice?

Last November I purchased a leasehold flat in Alvaston. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
