I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by TSB. Is it usual for TSB to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Locksbottom is approved on their conveyancing panel? TSB have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Locksbottom.

It is understandable to have concerns 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 £1k, then valuation, Locksbottom conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Co-operative approved list. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Co-operative and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with searches.
