Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Handsworth. Is there a reason why all Handsworth conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for banks to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s viewpoint, the flip side is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and feel it imperative to defend themselves from mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their conveyancing panel to a manageable size.

I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Lloyds TSB Bank to clarify?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Handsworth and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
