My offer was accepted on a house in Ilkeston on 2/4/2024, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Solicitor appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Are Santander entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I bought my home on 6 October and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Ilkeston said it would be dealt with in less than a month. Are transfers in Ilkeston particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Ilkeston registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any other parties. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Ilkeston is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Ilkeston are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ilkeston 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 Ilkeston 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 property.
