You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

My wife and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom flat in Bulls Cross. When we first instructed solicitor, they assured us that they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. Our mortgage broker emailed yesterday to advise that they are not on the Nottingham approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Do we simply choose a new property lawyer that is on their panel or should we cover the costs for separate representation, with Nottingham selecting their own preferred lawyer.
If you are purchasing a property requiring a mortgage it is normal for the buyer’s solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancing practitioner has to fulfill. Some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your lawyer should contact Nottingham to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Nottingham's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Bulls Cross solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
