I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel solicitor as I would prefer to use a local conveyancing solicitor in Crawley Down?
You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel lawyers if you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the bank and see if they offer you a cash alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Crawley Down.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Crawley Down is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Crawley Down are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Crawley Down you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Crawley Down 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 residence.
