I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nottingham. Is it usual for Nottingham to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Pickering is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nottingham have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Pickering is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Pickering are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Pickering 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 Pickering may ascertain 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.
