My fiance and I are acquiring a flat in Chiswick. My Solicitor has never been on on the mortgage company approved panel. Can I still appoint my Chiswick conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the mortgage company panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
One will need to use a conveyancing practitioner to complete the legal work required if you take out a loan to buy your property. The conveyancer will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One can select a Chiswick property lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the bank approved list additional charges will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications may be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.
My partner and I are nearing an exchange on a house in Chiswick and my parents have sent the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your lawyer is obliged to clarify with the bank to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Leeds Building Society. Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Chiswick is approved on their conveyancing panel? Leeds Building Society have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
