We wanted to use a property lawyer in Campden Hill for our house move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage company Nationwide Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Lenders in the main imposes restrictions either the category or the volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such criteria being that a firm must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, a few banks have limited the amount of solicitor practices they allow to represent them. You should note that Nationwide Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Nationwide Building Society Conveyancer Panel.

I have just started marketing my basement flat in Campden Hill. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?
It best that you pay the invoice as usual given that all rents and maintenance invoices will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
