We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Falconwood for our house move. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage company Britannia won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Lenders on the whole imposes restrictions either the category or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their member panel. A common example of such criteria being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, a few lenders have reduced the amount of firms they allow to act for them. You should note that Britannia have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Britannia Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels since 2008 even though there remains differing views concerning the level of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud.

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Georgian property in Falconwood. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property.

It is not completely unheard of in Falconwood and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
