Me and my fiancee are buying our first home. The conveyancer has texted usto ask if we wish to order supplemental conveyancing searches. Unfortunately we are clueless as to what's appropriate for conveyancing in West Dulwich

I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in West Dulwich. The West Dulwich property was put into my name in September. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in September. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

My offer was accepted on a property in West Dulwich on 14/8/2020, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing 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?

Mortgage companies tend not to 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.
