Are the BSA intent on creating a searchable register to to identify law firms on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Barnet?
We would not expect to be advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to develop such a tool.
Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Barnet. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and HSBC Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Barnet and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
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 straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Barnet is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Barnet are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Barnet you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Barnet 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 residence.

My partner has encouraged me to appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Barnet. Should I use them?
Much as we are happy to recommend a Barnet conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to seek recommendations from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the conveyancer that you are are thinking of instructing.
I have been Googling for Barnet conveyancing quotes online. Can I be sure that all the Barnet practices that are listed on your directory are on the lender conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices listed on our site have advised us that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the mortgage company panel. To date we have not been informed by either a bank or a member of the public that the data about a specific Barnet conveyancing solicitor being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel is not accurate.
