These days conveyancing panel lawyers for banks conduct their work through the post, e-mail or over the phone.

We are buying a apartment in Marston Moretaine. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? On the day of competition we have to put our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?

I am expecting a DIP from Clydesdale this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Marston Moretaine off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Barclays. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
