I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Petersfield. 95% of the properties are already sold. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Petersfield?
You are taking a significant risk in failing carrying out Petersfield conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would absolutely advise in no uncertain terms that you have them. Where accelerating the process and cost are top of your concerns you should consider with your solicitor about the possibility of search insurance

We were going to get a AIP from TSB this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Petersfield solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Petersfield solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.
About to purchase house in Petersfield. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Petersfield lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
My offer was accepted on a house in Petersfield on 25/2/2021, valuation was booked five days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Clydesdale and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Are Clydesdale entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
