I am selling my home in Brockley. Will the solicitor need to be required to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the HSBC 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 conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

You should choose a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. The first thing to do is call your preferred Brockley conveyancing solicitor and ask if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not on the panel you have numerous options available to you here:
- Carry on with your existing Brockley property lawyer but Halifax will undoubtedly use a conveyancing practitioner on their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional fees and likely frustration.
- Choose a fresh property lawyer to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
- Convince your property lawyer to attempt to join the bank panel.
