After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Bishop Auckland. My mortgage broker suggested a solicitor. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Shortly after, the solicitor contacted me to say that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bishop Auckland is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Bishop Auckland are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bishop Auckland you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bishop Auckland 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.
I’m about to sell my 2 bed flat in Bishop Auckland.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated but I have just had a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and service charges will be apportionedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
