I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. East Sheen is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in East Sheen are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside East Sheen you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Sheen 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.

My lawyer (based 300 miles awayrequires that I execute a stat dec prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in East Sheen who can attest this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are based in East Sheen

My wife and I about to exchange buying a property in East Sheen but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have agreed reparation from the current proprietors of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but the bank will not agree to this. Why were they involved?

Your property lawyer being on the lender conveyancing panel is required to disclose to the lender of any variations to the sale amount. In the event that you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the reduction to your bank then they would have to disinstructing themselves from representing you and the lender.
