My home in Laindon is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Will the conveyancing practitioner need to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Aldermore 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 currently.

Laindon conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The crucial factor here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it shouldn't impact the saleability too much.
