My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Newport. I I am struggling to find out whether they are on the Barclays approved list of lawyers. Can you advise?
You should e-mail your solicitor and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should get in touch with Barclays who may be able to help.
Is it the case that all Newport conveyancing solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the RBS conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be regulated by the CLC.

You will need to appoint Newport solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.
