I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Westbury Park for our house purchase. Our broker has since advised us that our bank Bank of Scotland won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Banks on the whole restrict either the category or the amount of conveyancing firms on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the profile of firm, a few lenders have decided to limit the amount of solicitor practices they permit to act for them. Be aware that Bank of Scotland have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Bank of Scotland Conveyancer Panel.

3 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Westbury Park took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 property 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 issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Westbury Park is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

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 premises.
