It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Tottenham. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Is this a problem?

I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Tottenham?
You should check but the the probability is that allocate you one of their panel solicitors should you accept the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the bank to ask if they allow a monetary alternative.

The buyer’s lawyers should also commission an environmental search. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be conducted.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Tottenham is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Tottenham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently.

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.
