My financial adviser has asked me for my Easton solicitor’s panel reference for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Easton branch but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Easton property lawyer . Most Easton conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.

The person best placed to deal with your question is your solicitors who will hopefully calculate whether he or she is corresponding with the lender, seller’s conveyancers, estate agents or possibly all three given what has gone on in your conveyancing as of today.

Your Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Aldermore mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
