We are selling our house in Faversham. Will the lawyer need to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Bank of Ireland 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 currently.

I'm the only beneficiary of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Faversham. The Faversham property was put into my name in October. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in October. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is chiefly there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

My offer was accepted on an apartment in Faversham on 4/10/2022, valuation was booked five days later, received a clean bill of health.

Having made daily calls to Nottingham and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

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 Nottingham to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
