My husband and I are hoping to buy a property in Blaydon On Tyne and are in fact using a Blaydon On Tyne conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our solicitor has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Alliance & Leicester have this morning contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Blaydon On Tyne lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Is this a problem?
When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Blaydon On Tyne lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

I'm the sole recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Blaydon On Tyne. The Blaydon On Tyne property was put into my name in May.

Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that.
