My Solicitor in Dronfield is not on the Chelsea Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the Chelsea Building Society approved list?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Dronfield lawyers but Chelsea Building Society will need to use a conveyancer on their panel. This will result in additional overall conveyancing fees and result in frustration.
- Find a new solicitor to act in the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are on the Chelsea Building Society panel

I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased aunt’s Will, with a bungalow in Dronfield which will be marketed. The property has never been registered at HMLR and I'm told that some estate agents will insist that it is done before they'll move forward. What's the procedure for this?
In the circumstances that you have set out it seems prudent to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
