My wife and I are buying a 3 bedroom apartment in Gallows Corner with a mortgage. We like our Gallows Corner solicitor, but the lender says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel firms or keep our Gallows Corner property lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We regard this is unjust; are we not able to require that the lender use our Gallows Corner conveyancer ?
No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Gallows Corner conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my rented property in Gallows Corner by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in six weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?
Generally one should not give notice for your tenancy unless you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, update to your lawyer and ask them to they cajole the owners solicitors, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will aim to achieve

Intending to buy a apartment in Gallows Corner. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Gallows Corner conveyancing practitioner is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
I am looking for Gallows Corner conveyancing quotes online. Can I be confident that all the Gallows Corner firms that are listed on your site are on the lender conveyancing panel?
The law firms listed on our site have advised us that they are on the mortgage company panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the mortgage company panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Gallows Corner conveyancing solicitor being on the bank conveyancing panel is not accurate.
