Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to take that path of guidance.

I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Goole property lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.
