Me and my fiance are acquiring a maisonette in Alderley Edge. My lawyer has never been on on the bank conveyancing panel. Am I still permitted to use my Alderley Edge conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
One must have a conveyancer to deal with the formalities if you take out a mortgage to buy your home. They will conduct all the essential legal checks on the property, ensuring that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. One can select a Alderley Edge lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the solicitor selected is not on the bank conveyancing panel additional charges will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so where your lawyer has not previously applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

We're in Alderley Edge, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is TSB , and our solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
