My husband and I are purchasing a 1 bedroom flat in Gainsborough with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Gainsborough solicitor, but the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel solicitors or continue with our Gainsborough conveyancing practitioner and pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We consider that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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 Gainsborough conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

four months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Gainsborough concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Gainsborough is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Gainsborough are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Gainsborough you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Gainsborough may determine 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 residence.
