My offer was accepted on a house in Swanland on 27/7/2020, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Property lawyer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Leeds Building Society and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Are Leeds Building Society entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Swanland is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Swanland are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Swanland you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Swanland may decide 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.
Do I need to be concerned about brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a local Swanland conveyancing firm?
As is the case with many service providers, often recommendations from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may suggest solicitors to retain. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that most lenders have an approved list of lawyers you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
