Have you tried speaking to your Oxfordshire conveyancing practitioner about this?. They retain a central record lender panel numbers.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Oxfordshire conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel?

Do I select a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Oxfordshire?
There are many registered licenced Conveyancers in Oxfordshire and Solicitor firms in Oxfordshire to choose from We would stress that both are supervised by regulatory bodies with both specialising in the legal work in transferring property. The two can handle other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, enfranchisement and transfer of equity conveyancing.
I am purchasing a detached bungalow in Oxfordshire. We would like to an extension at the rear at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to determine if these alterations were previously refused?
Your conveyancer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Oxfordshire will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of changes or require the permission of a 3rd party. Some works require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
My husband and I are spending time looking at houses in Oxfordshire and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Principality.
You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Principality, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Oxfordshire in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Oxfordshire. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Oxfordshire especially if they are familiar with such properties in Oxfordshire.

(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Oxfordshire conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the conveyancer's time in submitting the funds this way.
