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. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

We are purchasing a end of terrace house in Upper Clapton. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these alterations were previously refused?

Your property lawyer will check the registered title as conveyancing in Upper Clapton can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of alterations or need the permission of another owner. Certain works call for local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions.

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 Upper Clapton lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel.
