My partner and I are acquiring an apartment in Aston. My Solicitor has never been on on the bank approved list. Is it possible for me to continue with my Aston conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel?
One will need to instruct a solicitor to deal with the formalities when you take out a mortgage to purchase your home. They will carry out all the necessary legal checks on the property, make sure that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. One could instruct a Aston conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the solicitor selected is not on the lender solicitor panel further costs will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not previously sought membership they should take the chance to apply.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Aston. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your lender or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Aston relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.
I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a Aston based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel lawyers should you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the lender and ask if they make available a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Aston.
