I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. I would like to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Wythenshawe. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I am purchasing a garden flat in Wythenshawe. Can I do my own conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Wythenshawe you will have to appoint a solicitor on your bank's conveyancing panel to look after their interests.

Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Wythenshawe.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Wythenshawe benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about the side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
