We are selling our house in Hinton St George. Does my conveyancer have to be required to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale.

You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.
