The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

My partner and I have recently had an offer accepted on a property and had an appointment on Monday with Nationwide for the mortgage. They have informed me that when it comes to selecting a conveyancing practitioner that if they are not on their approved list of lawyers then we will be subject to an a further fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to select a conveyancer to act for them in addition to the one we select for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their fees. I have asked Nationwide to furnish me with a list so I can seek quotes only from their approved solicitors but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a list online?
Ask Nationwide what their panel criteria is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the solicitor of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Nationwide in the past. If the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Nationwide. Alternatively please utilise our search tool and we should be able to find you a lawyer in Burnt Oak on the panel for Nationwide.
