My financial adviser says he needs my Slough solicitor’s panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. How do I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Slough office but they cant find it on their system.

My partner and I have arranged the release of further monies on our home loan from Barclays as we intend to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Slough. Are we obliged to appoint a nearby Slough solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Barclays would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Barclays list.
My wife and I are in the throws of viewing flats in Slough and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a lawyer appointed at this point? I will be getting a mortgage with Lloyds.
It would be wise to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Lloyds, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Slough off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with RBS. 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 have 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 RBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel.
