We were going to get a AIP from Nationwide this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Perivale solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Perivale on 20/8/2020, valuation was booked 3 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer.

Threeweeks into purchasing a residence in Perivale. Conveyancing solicitor has phoned to say the property is "Leasehold". Should this adversely affect the salability of the property?
Perivale conveyancing does not normally involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to affect the value significantly.
At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a material effect on the value, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The length of lease and ground rent will be stated in the lease which should be made available to your solicitor.
