My Conveyancer in Warrington has never been on on the Virgin Money Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my prefered solicitor even though they are not on the Virgin Money panel?

- Find a new solicitor to to deal with the conveyancing, remembering to check they are Convince your conveyancer to use their best endeavours to join the Virgin Money conveyancing panel
Various web forums that I have visited warn that are a common cause of hinderance in Warrington conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Warrington.
It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Warrington took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Warrington prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Warrington. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their preferred lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Warrington
It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Warrington conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by HQ.
