Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently in recent years.

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price.

As is the case with many service providers, often suggestions from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest lawyers to choose. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the endorsement.
