We hired a Allenton based lawyer for our conveyancing in Allenton recently. Upon checking the Terms I noteI am liable for costs even if the sale aborts. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based firm promising no move no charge conveyancing in Allenton?

We expect to receive a AIP from Aldermore this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Aldermore recommend any Allenton solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

Intending to buy a apartment in Allenton.

My husband and I are purchasing a first floor flat in Allenton. At the point of instructing our conveyancing practitioner, we were told they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. The mortgage broker emailed just now to say that they don't seem to be on the Bank of Ireland approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Should we simply pick a different conveyancer that is on their approved list or should we pay for separate representation, with Bank of Ireland appointing their own preferred conveyancing practitioner.
When buying a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is usual for the purchaser’s lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancer has to meet. Some banks now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your lawyer should call Bank of Ireland to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Bank of Ireland's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Allenton lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
