I'm buying my first flat in Kingsbury benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Kingsbury is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Kingsbury are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsbury you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kingsbury may decide 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 property.

My husband and I are acquiring a garden flat in Kingsbury. At the point of instructing our conveyancer, they assured us that they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. The mortgage broker called today to advise that they don't appear to be on the TSB approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we just choose a different conveyancer that is on their approved list or should we pay for dual representation, with TSB selecting their own approved solicitor.

Where you are acquiring a property needing a mortgage it is usual for the buyer’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the property lawyer has to fulfill. Some building societies now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancer should contact TSB to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on TSB's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Kingsbury lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
