Can you help - my lawyer says that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Norfolk conveyancing?

Is it the case that all Norfolk solicitor firms on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Norfolk. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Norfolk what are the most frequent lease defects?
Leasehold conveyancing in Norfolk is not unique. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage
You may encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Barclays , The Mortgage Works, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease.
