I do hope you can assist me. My Barons Court conveyancer is assuring me that she is duty bound toorder Barons Court conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Barons Court conveyancing searches.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Barons Court is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
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 Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Barons Court accepted, the vendors do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Barons Court. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Barons Court conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Leeds Building Society and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Barons Court.
