We see that you have a search directory identifying law firms on the Principality conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a referral fee if I appoint them for our own conveyancing in Stratford?

we are a couple who are hoping to buy a newbuild flat in Stratford with a homeloan from Barclays .We like our Stratford conveyancing practitioner but Barclays advised that his firm is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Barclays panel lawyer or keep our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Barclays approved list. Until recently, most banks 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barclays

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Stratford is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Stratford are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Stratford you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Stratford 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.
