I have just been advised by my lender that my Burbage lawyer is not on the lender Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?
The best course of action for you to take is to call your Burbage conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Burbage conveyancing practice that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.

I am buying a end of terrace house in Burbage. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to determine if these works are permitted?
Your conveyancer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Burbage can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain changes or necessitated the permission of another owner. Certain extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I am expecting a AIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Burbage solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
I'm spending time viewing flats in Burbage and I am about to put in an offer. Is it sensible to have my conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Skipton.
It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Skipton, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
