In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, but Kent Reliance would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor.

The mortgage over my property is with HSBC for my property in Peak District. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform HSBC?
HSBC must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of HSBC’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact HSBC directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a HSBC conveyancing panel firm.

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Peak District conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.

During a rising market some buyers will apply for a home loan with Leeds Building Society and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Peak District.
How does conveyancing in Peak District differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Peak District approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because builders in Peak District usually acquire the site, 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 Peak District or who has acted in the same development.
