My IFA requires my Mexborough and Swinton lawyer’ panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to discover this. I have called my local Mexborough and Swinton branch but they don't know it.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Mexborough and Swinton conveyancing practitioner . Most Mexborough and Swinton conveyancing practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
My friend suggested that where I am buying in Mexborough and Swinton I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Mexborough and Swinton I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Mexborough and Swinton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I have selected a Mexborough and Swinton conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (first time buyers) and have spotted in the Ts and Cs that they are not overseen by the FCA. Am I right to be worried or is that usually the case with conveyancer?
We can't see why they should be. Most solicitor don't lend money. You should check that they are regulated by the SRA, who dictate strict laws in relation to funds deposited by them.
