The lawyer will conduct all the necessary investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. You may appoint a Huyton property lawyer of your choice. However, where the lawyer selected is not a member of the bank approved list further costs will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so where your conveyancer has not in the past applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Barclays conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit.
