Some advice if I may. My Cornhill On Tweed lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound toapply for Cornhill On Tweed conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Virgin Moneyapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a home loan with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cornhill On Tweed conveyancing searches.
I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a Cornhill On Tweed based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel solicitors if you want the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender and determine if they offer you a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Cornhill On Tweed.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cornhill On Tweed
There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Assuming the property is recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The property may still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title deeds which might be with your parent’s mortgage company.
