Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Hythe. What is the rationale as to why all Hythe conveyancers are not on all bank panels?

As unjust as it may seem for lenders to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or solicitor’s point of view, the flip side is that lending institutions are increasingly anxious and consider it crucial to shield themselves from mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern banks have consolidated their conveyancing panel to a manageable size.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Hythe is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

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

I am 17 days into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the high street agent to do our conveyancing in Hythe. I am not happy. Could you help me find new lawyers?

They would have to be very poor to suggest diss instructing them. Has the loan offer been issued? If so you must inform them of the replacement solicitor and get the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. The solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid supplemental costs and frustration. So that should be your starting point.
