It has come to my attention via my mortgage adviser that my Marple solicitor is not on the bank Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?
Your first step should be to call your Marple lawyer directly. You lawyer should inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Marple conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your lender.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Marple on 6/3/2019, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Aldermore and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Are Aldermore entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (make sure the solicitors are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Kent Reliance or the broker and finish off any outstanding forms.

I was recommended by numerous selling agents in Marple to select a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your site over and above another?
We refuse to give any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
Am I best advised to go with a Marple conveyancing lawyer based in the vicinity that I am hoping to buy? An old friend can carry out the conveyancing but his firm is located over three hundred kilometers drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Marple conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Marple know how is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Marple conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
Do banks and building societies provide you with an approved list of Marple solicitors? How do you know who is on the lender conveyancing panel?
