My fiance and I are purchasing a newly converted apartment in Datchet with a loan from National Westminster Bank.We would like to retain our Datchet conveyancing lawyer but National Westminster Bank advised that his firm is not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a National Westminster Bank panel lawyer or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a National Westminster Bank panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that National Westminster Bank use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the National Westminster Bank conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for National Westminster Bank

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Datchet. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Datchet?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Datchet. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Datchet conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Santander?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Santander done the survey? Have you informed Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am purchasing my first flat in Datchet with a loan from National Westminster Bank. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about this deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
