My work colleague mentioned that when choosing a conveyancing solicitors they need approved by your lender. This is my first house move but I have an AIP via Halifax and I already have a local conveyancing lawyer in North Hykeham lined up. Can Halifax need an approved conveyancer to be selected?

You should instruct a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. The simplest thing to do is ring your preferred North Hykeham conveyancing solicitor and ask if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not approved you have a number of alternatives available to you here:
- Proceed with your chosen North Hykeham solicitor but Halifax will no doubt instruct a property lawyer from their approved list. This will result in additional charges and potential interruption.
- Appoint a fresh conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your property lawyer to seek to join the bank panel.
