After shopping around on the internet I have found a Little Haven lawyer having made sure that they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Nationwide will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nationwide will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Little Haven surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I am buying my first flat in Little Haven with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Do I need to be wary about brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Little Haven conveyancing practice?

As with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may recommend solicitors to appoint. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to select your own lawyer. You need to be aware that many banks specify a panel list of lawyers you must use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
