We're in Hadley Wood, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is HSBC , and our solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

My partner and I are spending time looking at houses in Hadley Wood and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancing practitioner in place at this stage? I will be getting a home loan with Coventry BS.

It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are seeking a mortgage with Coventry BS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.

Is it usual for Bank of Ireland to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Hadley Wood is approved on their conveyancing panel?

At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Hadley Wood conveyancing search fees, etc).
