Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from St Agnes. I would like to know the understand why all St Agnes property lawyers aren't automatically on all lender panels?

Before the recession most banks had an approach to risk which is different than today. The financial regulator in 2010 instigated a thematic review into property fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the lawyers on your panel. Accordingly, mortgage companies have since soughtmore data from law firms concerning their processes and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Hundreds of law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible satisfy the criteria of volume of transactions the mortgage companies required.

I'm purchasing my first flat in St Agnes with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. St Agnes is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

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