I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Lacock conveyancing practitioners are chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Lacock. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an on account payment of £225. Shortly after, the solicitor called me to say that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Principality panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Lacock solicitor having checked that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Lacock postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Lacock.

The deeds to our property can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Lacock 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Lacock is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Lacock are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lacock you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lacock 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.
