My financial adviser requires my Manchester law firm’s panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. How do I find this out. I have contacted my local Manchester branch but they have not responded to me.

Any further balance that is due will be payable a few days prior to the day of completion.
I am thinking of mortgaging my apartment in Manchester, does my lawyer need to be on the Clydesdale Conveyancing panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Clydesdale will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Manchester it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately could cause delays to Manchester commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not conducted for residential conveyancing in Manchester.

The CLC will let you know what information they have and any additional information they may need before they are in a position to identify and send the documents to you. Following an intervention it may take some time for the CLC to access archived files and documents, but your request will be actioned with reasonable haste.
