In the event thatI were to purchase a straightforward propertyin Newport Pagnell for cash and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Newport Pagnell?

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Newport Pagnell off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Principality. 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 Principality, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel.
Nationwide have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a apartment in Newport Pagnell has been accepted, what happens next?
Your estate agent will wish to be informed of your conveyancer's details (ensure that the property lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Contact Nationwide or your financial adviser and finalise any outstanding paperwork. Nationwide will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to arrange a time for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Newport Pagnell.

We are purchasing a three room bungalowin Newport Pagnell with a home loan from a mortgage company. We would like to retain our lawyer in Newport Pagnell yet our bank says she’s not on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose from the our bank panel firms or keep our Newport Pagnell conveyancer and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The lender mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Newport Pagnell : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
