Shortly after, the property lawyer called me to say that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Helston is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

We are buying a 2 bedroom flatin Helston with a mortgage from a bank. We would like to retain our conveyancer in Helston however our lender advise he's not approved on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our lender panel firms or stay with our Helston solicitor and incur the extra costs for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Helston lawyer?

No, not really. The bank home loan issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender's conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had open panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Helston : a mortgagee 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 lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
