I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to instruct a Audlem based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel conveyancers should you want the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the lender and see if they make available a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Audlem.
