we are a couple who are buying a newbuild apartment in Brough with a homeloan from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We would like to retain our Brough conveyancing lawyer but The Royal Bank of Scotland informed us he's not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and pay for a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that The Royal Bank of Scotland use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Brough. Having lived in Brough for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Brough.

I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Brough before instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to issue a loan on such a property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can look into this further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Brough.
