My husband and I are buying a 2 bedroom flat in Rothwell with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Rothwell conveyancer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to select one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or retain our Rothwell conveyancer as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Rothwell conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
The Rothwell conveyancing firm handling our Rothwell conveyancing has uncovered a difference when comparing the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s course or action legitimate?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Rothwell completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Rothwell is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Rothwell are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Rothwell you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rothwell 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 property.
