we are a couple who intend to purchase a newbuild apartment in Friern Barnet with a homeloan from Platform Home Loans Ltd.We have a Friern Barnet conveyancing solicitor but Platform Home Loans Ltd says he's not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Platform Home Loans Ltd panel firm or keep our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors must be on the Platform Home Loans Ltd approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Platform Home Loans Ltd

Have purchased a a detached house in Friern Barnet , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Friern Barnet conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my purchase is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Friern Barnet registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not typically top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Friern Barnet is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Friern Barnet are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Friern Barnet you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Friern Barnet may ascertain 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 premises.
