My fiancee and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Neasden and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a mortgage with Clydesdale.

Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Neasden. My mortgage broker suggested a property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Not long after, the conveyancer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

How does conveyancing in Neasden differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Neasden come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Neasden typically buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Neasden or who has acted in the same development.
