We are selling our home in Bedford Hill. Does the conveyancing practitioner need to be required to be on the UBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the UBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently at the moment.
I am purchasing my first flat in Bedford Hill benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

As with many service providers, often recommendations from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all suggest solicitors to appoint. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are free to appoint your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
