It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Eltham. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they could stored with the solicitor who handled the purchase.

About to purchase maisonette in Eltham. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Eltham lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Bank of Ireland. Is it usual for Bank of Ireland to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Eltham is approved on their conveyancing panel? Bank of Ireland have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Georgian property in Eltham. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Eltham and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
