Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Edwinstowe. Please spell out why all Edwinstowe conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all bank panels?
Mortgage companies point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It led to banks and building societies culling less reputable firms from their panel of approved solicitors .

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Edwinstowe. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Edwinstowe?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being pedantic. The Edwinstowe solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
