We are selling our home in Keyworth. Will my lawyer need to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nationwide 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 panel criteria fairly frequently in recent years.
What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Keyworth
Do not opt for the cheapest Keyworth conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.
How can we know in advance if a Keyworth conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Co-operative. Is it usual for Co-operative to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Keyworth is approved on their conveyancing panel? Co-operative have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Keyworth is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Keyworth are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Keyworth you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Keyworth may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Me and my wife have just had an offer agreed on a house and had meeting on Tuesday with Nationwide for the mortgage. They advised us that when it comes to appointing a conveyancing practitioner that unless they are on their approved panel of property lawyers then we will be subject to an an additional charge of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to appoint a solicitor to act on their behalf in addition to the one we select for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have asked Nationwide to send me with a list so I can request estimates only from their approved solicitors but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is their an easier way of going about this?
You should ask Nationwide what their panel criteria is for a conveyancer.Then ask the solicitor of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for Nationwide in the past. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Nationwide. Alternatively please make use of our search facility and we should be able to locate a conveyancing practitioner in Keyworth on the approved list for Nationwide.
