We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Cheadle for our house purchase. Our financial adviser has since advised us that our bank Nationwide Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Before the recession most lenders had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Cheadle conveyancing firms would have been on many mortgage company panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders are increasingly seeing more information from law firms concerning their operations and their employees as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum volume of transactions. Many Cheadle conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Cheadle is amongst the thousands of locations where the lawyers we list are on the panel for Nationwide Building Society.

A friend advised me that where I am buying in Cheadle I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Cheadle Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Cheadle.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Cheadle is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Cheadle are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cheadle you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Cheadle 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 son is about to join the property ladder, he had his mortgage in principle. After the offer was accepted on flat we rang the building society to issue the formal offer. I was very surprised to discover that mortgage lenders do not accept all conveyancer, they have to be on a list, is this legal?

Lenders ordinarily restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that banks have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Cheadle conveyancer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Probably not.
