My partner and I have arranged the release of further monies on our home loan from Clydesdale as we want to carry out alterations to our home in Mitcham. Do we need to choose a local Mitcham solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Clydesdale would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Mitcham. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an advanced payment of £175. Not long after, the conveyancer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nottingham panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Mitcham conveyancing practitioner is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
