The fact that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Mitcham is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Mitcham are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Mitcham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Mitcham may decide 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.
