I was advised recently by my estate agent that my Earls Barton the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?

IfI was to purchase a simple residential propertyin Earls Barton for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Earls Barton?
The only reduction in fees you would achieve is the costs for searches.

We had appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Earls Barton on the Virgin Money solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further charge for dealing with the Virgin Money mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Virgin Money?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Virgin Money but by your Earls Barton conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Virgin Money panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
We were going to get a AIP from Aldermore 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). Do Aldermore recommend any Earls Barton solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Earls Barton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.
