My apartment in Cyncoed is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Co-operative 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 requirements fairly frequently at the moment.
