I am buying residence in Dronfield. My lawyer has never been on on the mortgage company conveyancing list. Can I still appoint my Dronfield conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options include
- Proceed with your chosen Dronfield conveyancer but your mortgage company will undoubtedly instruct a conveyancer on their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional cost together with probable delay.
- Choose a fresh conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the lender conveyancing panel.
- Convince your conveyancer to do everything possible to get listed on the lender’s panel of solicitors

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Dronfield is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

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.
