Me and my partner are buying a 2 bedroom apartment in Cowley with a mortgage. We like our Cowley conveyancer, but the lender advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel firms or retain our Cowley conveyancer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This feels very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. Another option that might be available is for your Cowley conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Back In 2009, I bought a leasehold house in Cowley. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Cowley who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

First make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Cowley conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
