At what point does exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Plympton and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Plympton you are welcome to come in to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend provide a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Plympton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I am selling my apartment in Plympton. Does the property lawyer need to be on the RBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the RBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.
Is it the case that all Plympton solicitor practices on the Skipton conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

I'm in the process of looking at apartments in Plympton and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have my conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a home loan with Aldermore.
You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Coventry BS. Is it usual for Coventry BS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Plympton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Coventry BS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I'm buying a new build house in Plympton with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my conveyancer about the extras as it may adversely affect my loan with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
