My fiancee and I are in the throws of viewing houses in Forest of Dean and I am about to put in an offer. Is it wise to have my conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with Lloyds.
It would be wise to commence your search sooner rather than later.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Forest of Dean. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Forest of Dean on 5/5/2022, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Principality and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Principality 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 Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
