My wife and I have a renovated Edwardian house in Walton Le Dale. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and TSB. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Walton Le Dale 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 lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

I'm buying my first flat in Walton Le Dale with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

My son is embarking on her first house purchase, he had his mortgage in principle. One the seller agreed the offer on the apartment we called the bank to issue the formal offer. We were shocked to discover that mortgage companies do not accept all conveyancing practitioner, they must be on their panel, is this right?

Mortgage Companies normally restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that lenders have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Walton Le Dale conveyancer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Unlikely.
