My solicitor has discovered a a problem with the lease for the property we are buying in Vauxhall. The seller’s lawyers have suggested defective title insurance as a workaround.

Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.

My wife and I have instructed a Vauxhall conveyancing solicitor for our home move (FTB’s) and have noticed in the Ts and Cs that they are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Should I be worried or is that the norm with conveyancer?
We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They will be governed by the SRA, who set stringent stipulations regulating funds sitting by them.
