We have to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or continue with our Sandbanks conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them.

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower 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 Sandbanks conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

My wife and I have a semi-detached Georgian house in Sandbanks. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Birmingham Midshires. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should review 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 Sandbanks and other areas of 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 purchasers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.

Flying freeholds in Sandbanks are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

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.
