My husband and I are buying a 1 bedroom apartment in Audlem with a residential mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society.We use our Audlem conveyancing solicitor but Yorkshire Building Society advised that she’s not on their approved list of firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Yorkshire Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Yorkshire Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Yorkshire Building Society use our lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the Yorkshire Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society

The deeds to my home are lost. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Audlem 5 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

As long as the title is registered the details of your ownership will be documented by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, find your house and secure current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Audlem is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Audlem are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Audlem you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Audlem 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 property.
