Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Swanland conveyancing lawyers were appointed. How long does it take for Nottingham to issue the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Nottingham completed the valuation? Have you advised Nottingham as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

We expect to receive a OIP from RBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Swanland solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Swanland solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

I own a terraced Victorian house in Swanland. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Swanland and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
