I can't travel far from Norbury. Is there a reason why all Norbury conveyancers aren't automatically on all bank panels?
Pre- 2008 most mortgage companies exhibited an attitude to risk which is different from today. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into fraud which concluded: know the solicitors on your panel. As a result, banks have subsequently soughtmore information from law firms regarding their operations and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many firms have been removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the minimum volume of transactions the mortgage companies required.

We are downsizing from our home in Norbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Norbury conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Norbury. We have lived in Norbury for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
Me and my brother have a terraced Victorian house in Norbury. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Nottingham Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Norbury and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
